What are the requirements for access to the sandbox?

I used the vault to upload an alternate version of the uuid library a
while back, when I don't have and am not currently planning on getting
a sandbox account.

Requiring that the code be in the sandbox before a review seems like a
reasonable requirement, though. Being able to propose modifications
as SVN diffs would be convenient.
