Etoys comes in two parts - a system package (which can be run on its own, like in GNOME) installed in /usr, and the activity, which is just a thin wrapper installed in ~/Activities. The wrapper doesn't do much more than launching Etoys under Sugar. Etoys itself has been extended to integrate with Sugar via D-Bus if it was launched with the wrapper. And to simplify the documentation we now use the "Sugar look" even on other platforms (Etoys does not actually use the Sugar activity toolkit for its UI, but emulates that look).
