I tried to change it but didn't find a way to do it. I don't know if the 
wiki supports changing page names. I could make a new page.

Its really easy, just point the file list to the .pr file and click the 
XO button. Excellent feature. One bad drawback is that you cant easily 
open a .xo file, its using some Sugar features to do some of the 
unzipping and loading.

Yes, I guess all formats should work. I used .xo because it is supported 
by the Browser on the XO and allows easy installation and execution of 
the activity.

etoys image.
Have you looked at the Scratch project. It has very good project sharing 
site and has a very vibrant community.
