If my acti-plication has dependencies that are not part of the underlying
build, do I need to install them on the gnome side first?  Or can
cross-platform libraries be initially installed on the Sugar side too?

A related follow-up: does it make sense to put cross-platform dependencies
that a gnome activity would need into ~/Activities/MyCoolActivity.activity/
