The "best practice" I am concocting is that a developer put all assets
into ~/Actitivities/MyCoolActivity/

The xo bundle will obviously install and point there. Gnome .rpm
installations should point there too.

Hopefully it is straightforward to make the gnome rpm installation point and
run from this location.  Is there anything I should look out for before
going down this path?
