That, and I don't want sandboxes scattered around in (somewhat) random
places. I might later want a sandbox there for a specific purpose, and a
pre-existing sandbox could confound things.
Mostly I don't like clutter, and the tools wouldn't be on the PATH though.
(To be clear, these *are* pretty minor complaints.)
