[Etoys] DrGeoII for OLPC

As I understand the problem raised by Bert, the concern is when the
user saves the activity. The DrGeo code is not linked with the
activity, and even if we can manage to load it, each time the user
opens an activity with DrGeo geometric sketch it will have to wait for
the 2.5 min Bert mentioned. Of course if the DrGeo code is permanently
in the Squeak image, it is not a concern any more.
