Was about to say this, the work means making sugar activities' code
more similar to GNOME apps, while also removing a daemon. This could
have some effect on how the network is used, but chances are it won't.

As a first step in removing the PS, I think we should try to implement
the python presence API with MC5 instead of PS. Then we can either
drop the PS or make it a compatibility shim with MC5 while activities
such as eToys make the move.

We can also take the chance to develop a better API if there's need for it.

But in any case, we need to do some exploration now before we can
discuss it in detail.
