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.)
