My initial goal was to put pysandbox directly into CPython when it
would be considered safe and stable.

The PEP 416 (frozendict) was a first step in this direction, but the
PEP was rejected.

I now gave up on sandboxing Python. I just would like to warn other
core developers that trying to put a sandbox in Python is not a good
idea :-)
