Emulating 8.2-767

It may be feasible to do this on Fedora, but it is not yet feasible on
Ubuntu.  Sugar doesn't do anything interesting there because the networking
is broken.  (They are working on it and the problem might be solved in a
test version, but it isn't feasible for someone who just wants to use
standard means for installing packages to obtain and try out Sugar.)  It is
nice that, as packaged, it is offered as one of the window manager choices,
so I believe it will soon be a good option.  But with no convenient way to
get the activities from the activity page, it isn't interesting yet.  (I
tried to put it on donated laptops I was setting up for use by teachers in a
nearby school.)
