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.

That's it, really?

I took the path of least resistance, and provide the path to the script file via XML-RPC.

After an hour of struggling with it, only to finally notice that I have to restart the server script (in addition to the Sugar Activity) if I actually want my changes to propagate, I have to say... that was pretty freaking easy.

By the way, why did nobody tell me about XML-RPC and its awesomeness sooner?
