cabal sandbox and the dist directory

currently it's conceptually and practically a bit unpleasant, that the
sandbox is a bit holey, because the 'dist' directory remains when
deleting the sandbox.

Is there a special reason for this behaviour?

In the case of a sandbox, why is there a 'dist' directory at all,
respectively why isn't it located inside of the '.cabal-sandbox' directory?
