I'm a little bit late on this one.  But I'm somewhat skeptical here.  As
I understand it, the sandboxing feature is not yet released.  I think
there is a chance that the first version will not cover all use cases.

So personally I think it is a better approach to first release the
feature, and give people time to try whether there use case are covered.

For context: I run my test in GHCi.  Sometimes this requires some work,
but I have a working setup for all my projects.  For me (and probably
for others who are serious about TDD), the sandbox feature is only
useful if running tests within GHCi works.
