I think we should always branch these together.  To my thinking, the 
distinction between "core" and "sandbox" is primarily be one of 
packaging: the core should be separate jar, as should each of the 
sandbox elements.  But all should be released and tested as a unit, to 
ensure compatibility.

I think the term "sandbox" is misleading and has outlived its 
usefulness.  We should probably rename this to something like "utils" or 
"optional".  These should be treated much like Ant's optional tasks: 
package them as separate jars, segregate their documentation, but don't 
branch them separately.  Perhaps we should also make it so that a failed 
sandbox build or unit test does not stop a build: the quality guarantee 
need not be as high for sandbox items.
