Subject Re: Elixir Sandbox

There have been discussions on figuring out how to sandbox Erlang. The
biggest thing on that front was that we'd want it to be a whitelist as
opposed to a blacklist of modules and/or module/function pairs. The
second is that with dynamic invocation its not immediately apparent if
that's entirely possible to do.

a sandbox library if you wanted to, say, implement a secure view processor.
