[development] Seems I need to take sandbox in my own hands

I know that you want the sandbox accounts to say the way they are, and 
you are willing to pay to get this.

Do not pay for this, I am willing to set up a cvs hosting with my host 
company, and provide this service to anyone that wants it.

I have Gb of space that can be allocated, and TB of bandwidth that can 
be donated to this. I can hand out most likely more that enough user 

I think this is a bad change/enforcement of the policy for sandboxes, 
and that the current system is a very valuable resource. I know that the 
sandboxes are no longer really used for their original purpose, but 
their use to a great help to development and share early code.

1 idea I did have is to move the sandbox to a 3rd repository, and we 
will not have the chaos of the sandboxes in the contrib repos.
