Yeah, that's the obvious question: what's the purpose of such very
limited Python subset, for example something limited to int with a few
operators (+ - * /)?

That's also why I gave up with pysandbox. It became impossible to
execute anything more complex than an hello world.

By the way, I noticed that enum.Enum and enum.EnumMeta don't work in
your sandbox.
