I am curious how we will be able to keep project interoperability
especially for DrGeoII between OLPC Etoys and Squeakland OLPC if we
separate them.

And by separating, also dependency would be introduced.  Then we might
want to manage it wisely.  For instances:
+ add dependency description to manifest in gzipped .pr so that user
can review it when encounter problem.
+ newer "base app" could check dependency hint embedded in project and
migrate the project if it is based on older app.
