Sugar API Changes

Deprecations
sugar.activity.activity
self._shared_activity is deprecated in 8.2.0 and will be removed in 9.1.0. Use self.shared_activity instead.
Additions

Use SugarTubeConnection instead of TubeConnection to get resolution of Telepathy handles to Buddies without needing the get_buddy boilerplate function. See this commit to Connect to see how to use it.
