Ideally it would be on by default, to have the best chance of avoiding mistakes
like developing new features that are incompatible with the sandbox (it has
happened recently). I guess the sandbox will probably break layout tests if
we're not careful, though. And I know you want to avoid waiting for D-Bus
registration when running layout tests.

So I would flip it to disable-sandbox, if possible.

Um, I thought this was supposed to be done automatically, but I can't find any
code for it, so I guess it has to be manual. :/
