The way I'd answer this is by:

* finding out where the "about my xo" code lives
* seeing if it exports this data to activities
* if not, seeing if activities can get at it themselves


* The code lives at sugar/extensions/cpsection/aboutcomputer/model.py
* It does not obviously export data to activities
* But it functions by reading files from the filesystem, and it looks
  like an activity could read the same ones.
