It looks like Python might end up with a sandbox execution environment 
after all.

Hi, John,

Have you seen the following thread on the new python-3000 mailing 
list?

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-3000/2006-April/thread.html#567

I remembered Mitch talking about this in his PyCon keynote and 
also found his blog mention of it:

http://blogs.osafoundation.org/mitch/000559.html

Is there possibly OSAF interest in this?  It seems like a good 
opportunity to try to get a real restricted execution capability
into Python 3000 (which is now under active development a no 
longer purely mythical in case you didn't know!)

Actually, from Mitch's blog it doesn't sound like this was really 
his own personal interest but it seemed worth emailing you in 
case it's of interest for Chandler longer-term.  It certainly 
would benefit anyone wanting to keep an app reasonably safe from 
malicious or accidental pollution from extension scripts written 
in Python.

Hope you're doing well!

Stephan Deibel
