This is fantastic - well done!

I've been out of the OLPC/Sugar world for a while now, but just yesterday I
was extolling the virtues of Sugar at a meeting in the university where I
work. Our vice-chancellor has challenged us to come up with innovative
learning ideas, and I was using Sugar as an example of what can be achieved
through creative thinking. I'm going to point everyone to Sugarizer so that
they can try it out for themselves :)
