I disagree with this.  People should (re)read the email I sent almost  
exactly 1 year ago about why people shouldn't put in-development code  
in the sandbox, but should instead use actual project nodes for it...


This was in response to a huge, ugly thread about removing the CVS  
sandbox entirely, so don't worry about the first few paragraphs, and  
instead focus on the rest of it, starting with:

i specifically talk about why it's sometimes a good idea to create a  
project node but not necessarily create any release nodes.
