Not with Sugar as currently designed - activities must be self- 
contained and not depend on each other. OTOH it would be possible to  
refer to other bundles currently because the activity separation is  
not (yet?) enforced. See

Yes (although git does not work well for etoys projects as we  
discussed offline). But with the two shell accounts you can use  
server space on dev.laptop.org, and you could request a subversion  
setup similar to what etoys uses:
