A "sandbox" is fine for developing a small bit... For example, my 
version of the kernel is in the sandbox now... When (let's say) we want 
to start rewriting stuff (Cocoon core) around it, we'll have to take it 
out of the sandbox, and break a lot of contracts...

Having a separate tree of "unstable" versions allows people to go on 
for longer with broken / not compiling code without being worried of 
having broken the main "stable" build.
