[Etoys] Example projects

Hi Bert --

In trying this, I found a few questions, perhaps glitches.

- I thought we weren't going to generate the key first thing. This 
takes a very long time on the board. Weren't we going to just supply a key?

- In Takashi's tutorial, RIGHT CLICK did not bring up the halos.

- We don't tell the player of Demon Castle how to get back (use the 
nav bar). This should be the last advice on the last page of the bookmorph.

- Seems as though Demon Castle should be full screen (this is a menu 
option in every bookmorph).

- On the button project, New should probably make a new project and 
go there, rather than just putting a blank project window up.

- I started this image up by double clicking on it, and this gave me 
no path to the sample Etoys folder when inside the image. But I 
wonder if this is an artifact since the file picker seems to show 
that the image is being executed in a different folder (probably the 
one with the VM in it). What should I see here/what should I do?
