Will OLPC joyride builds pick up the new Sucrose?

What happens when you upgrade an XO with the old datastore?
What happens if you then downgrade it?

When you upgrade an XO, does it import your old profile 
(~olpc/.sugar/default/config)?  What happens if you then downgrade?

Where are they marked, in the .py files?

Are the new activity versions backwards-compatible with 8.2?  If so, the 
maze of Activity lists should be updated.

Currently pulls in 
Activities/G1G1 , as does Activities/G1G1/8.2, and that list still 
references old versions -- Browse 98 not 100, Read 52 not 60, etc. -- 
even though the links say "Browse (latest)".

Maybe you could address these questions in a ==Compatibility== section 
in the release notes.

The changes and fixes sound excellent!
