[Ironpython-users] [main] -X:Sandbox command line argument (#61)

Our product is not related to ASP.NET. We only need users to script
calculations in a safe environment. They should not be able to run native
code, access the filesystem or do any other harm to the application.

The default InternetZone permission set seems to be nice for that. The
calculations run fine, except for the decimal module. The whole idea to
have sandbox in ipy.exe was just to make it easier to debug, test and
reproduce any problems.

I just scratched the app domain setup in pull request
But this is only a small first step I thought about to start people looking
at what needs to be changed. For example, should the access to
IronPython.Runtime.PythonContext. be refactored, or should its reference be
marshaled accross app domains? Unfortunately I don't have enough knowledge
to do this kind of refactor alone, or at least I don't think the time I
would need to implement this alone would pay off... So my question is: is
there anyone else interested in implementing sandbox in ipy.exe? If there
is more interest, I'll do a branch and we can work together.

Thank you a lot for the attention.

Best regards
