I even added initial .xol support but removed it since no one used this
functionality and this feature was making ASLO patch more messy.
In my mind just adding .xol files support in addition to .xo won't be
useful, just place .xols to wiki will be more useful. Having .xol on
ASLO has bunch of issues:
* different UI for .xols
* different internals like removing SugarPlatform or versions of .xol
that are not versions of activities
* different UI for .xol uploader
* complicate ASLO patch, there is no one who is PHP experienced and
can contribute to ASLO
* it could be a bit messy to have Activities Library(ASLO) and store
Having all these, and that there is real need in a method to share users
journal object (like TA projects), I decided instead of trying to
implement this functionality on ASLO, (continue)make Library activity, thus
pure python way.
Everything I posted about Activities_Library will be implemented firstly
for regular journal objects (including .xol).

As I can understand microformat, it will be just xml/http page with info
about activities i.e. similar to update-aslo.php script. Last time I
thought about it I didn't get feedback and decided that it is not
important (especially after adding ASLO Updater to sugar).
