Another reason why each build should come with a default bundle.

If countries develop their bundles independantly from Sugar evolution,
then the problem will just be more painful.  If countries have a default
bundle to refer to when developing their own, it could help solving
dependancy issues indirectly.

The default activities could be selected so that 90% of the dependancies
for other (known) activities are satisfied.  

At least, a default bundle combined with a nice GUI for xo-get.py would
discourage installation of old bundles on newer builds.

And you guys could get rid of the scary red warning on the wiki :)
