It's always the same with technology, going back and forth, full versus
bundle, thin client versus fat...
So far GCompris could be package in multi activity bundles without
problem. It already support this, you can just test it by running
"gcompris -l /math", it will show you all the activities under the /math
menu. All we miss is a way to create such bundles where all the
resources of a bundle group are together.

Any other splitting is fine for me. We already embed a difficulty level
(1 to 6) that could be use to create bundles.
I have not yet checked Aleksey work on bunding GCompris on Sugar so we
have to check how hard it would be to update the bundling process.
