Sandboxing is hard enough (see also the many JVM vulnerabilities) that the
only ones I even remotely trust are the platform level mechanisms that form
the foundation of the various PaaS services, including SELinux and Linux

Cross platform? In process? Even Lua is hard to secure in that situation,
and it has a much smaller attack surface than CPython or Java.
