[Bf-committers] Python sandbox

I am not talking about "make everything in Python run sandboxed". The  
target can be narrowed down to  a simpler task:

1) support animation scripts (drivers, constraints, fcurve mods)
2) interface scripts
3) basic import and export

If '3' or even '2' is not possible, we then can try '1' even, it might  
be useful for a total-safe blender to be used on farms, or for bug  
checks, etc. We should be aware that nearly every user won't ever code  
Python tools anyway.

I also dare to challange python.org to look into this topic again. If  
we cannot provide a decent quality and reasonable safe Blender with  
Python, we better ditch it and switch to Lua or so.
