acti-plications: write once, run anywhere?

On a dual-boot XO, does it make sense to use the same binary code for sugar
activities also in gnome applications?  If so, are there guidelines or
example acti-plications?

If the same binary code is *not *re-used by both platforms, but just the
same code base, are there guidelines or examples of how to re-use the same
code base effectively?  Off the top of my head, how data is serialized is
handled differently between the two platforms.

This question is of particular concern to acti-plications with many media
assets, like some video games.  It would be nice to avoid file redundancy.
 Given the small size of the XO netbooks, I hope this question is on mark
for this community.
