sugarbot's aim is to provide testing and automation facilities for the OLPC Project's Sugar GUI. The project must first identify and evaluate possible implementation options, and then implement the best choice. Although it has a Sugar focus, sugarbot should be easily extensible to other Python-based GUI's.

What is our scope?

In #olpc on Freenode, an individual by the name of 'homunq' suggested that the automation tool be rolled into its own Activity.  It could then be used to launch other Activities in its own process.  That would solve the problem of everything being in a separate process.   This would have to be done in a specific manner, since BitFrost prevents Activities from launching one-another, but does not prevent them from calling on one-another.  It would require some dynamic import's and class calling.
