Good to know about the ds-backup... (try the moodle-based restore too ;-) )

There has been discussion about some of the things you describe, but I
don't think much has happened. I'll keep this marked as good input for
Journal <=> XS interop ideas.

As a much simpler version of this, I think it'll be extremely easy to
add on the Moodle side a "mark a document as public" and make it
appear in a new "documents" tab to the user profile.

We'll probably want to re-label the "restore" tab as Journal and
"documents" as "activities" while we're at it.

I'll try see if I can do that.

For a more full-blown implementation following what you describe, we
really want o wait for Moodle 2.0 which has some fancy facilities that
will help (in the new "File API").
