I have a new feature I would like to propose. maintain a list of
launch times in the metadata. This will be useful for datastore
analysis in the client. (The sugar-stats package [1] developed and
maintained by alsroot can also be used to capture these data, but I
posit that having these data as part of the datastore will facilitate
data visualizations within Sugar itself.)

The attached patch, also shown inline here to
sugar-toolkit/src/sugar/activity/activity.py adds a timestamp each
time an activity is launched. These timestamps can be used to answer
questions such as how often an activity has been used? in school or at
home, et al. that are being asked by teachers and also used to provide
feedback to the child as to when and where they are working.
