it would be great if the sandbox could be converted quickly, so GSoC
students can use it ? It would be great if they didn't need to learn a
thousand tools before being able to focus on the project itself, and so
having a well-defined and -documented process to set things up and get
started would be very helpful.

(For the time being I guess we could just use the boost sandbox repo via
svn as in the past, yes ?)
