Why would anybody check out the whole sandbox ? I'd expect people to
check out individual projects. And, if many people do want a single
sandbox (for example defined as the set of all sandbox trunks), one can
easily set up such a metaproject using svn:externals. (see, another good
use case for it ! ;-) )
