As an elementary school teacher who ran a FR logo clubs and EN logo 
clubs with Canadian gr. 6-7-8 students, I can tell you already, there is 
no need to add this as a bundled extension. Logo is no longer taught in 
our Math programs (I am extremely sad about this). But, my point is that 
LibreLogo is just too much of a specialized bundle that most teachers 
would expect to find as an extension and not as a bundled extension. 
Lego Robotics are more popular at the elementary/secondary panel and 
there is usually funding available for hardware/software purchases from 
local sponsors for it.

As a teacher, I would rather see more clipart available in Gallery. I 
can't tell you how many times the students asked me if there was more 
clipart available. At least the additional clipart would be available to 
100% of the users whereas LibreLogo only for a very select few.
