Hi folks,

I worked with Marco P. G. on launching projects from the web  
activity. We got that working - if you visit a .pr file on the web it  
is downloaded and placed in the frame's clipboard area (left edge).  
Additionally, the etoys activity is launched, and the project is  
loaded (once I published my changes).

Note this only works with direct links to a project file, not if it  
is embedded as plugin in a page as we do for other squeakland  
projects. So this will work on the XO:


but this on a regular machine:


It should work (but I have not tested this yet) to link to some  
example etoys is /usr/share/etoys/ExampleEtoys from the Library html  
file. Might make a nice demo.

Is there anything else on the wishlist for test1?
