 Generate a special fully-sandboxed executable.
+The fully-sandboxed executable cannot be run directly, but
+only as a subprocess of an outer "controlling" process.  The
+sandboxed process is "safe" in the sense that it doesn't do
+any library or system call - instead, whenever it would like
+to perform such an operation, it marshals the operation name
+and the arguments to its stdout and it waits for the
+marshalled result on its stdin.  This controller process must
+handle these operation requests, in any way it likes, allowing
+full virtualization.
+For examples of controller process see
+``pypy/translator/sandbox/interact.py`` and
