If you're going down that road (which makes sense, of course), then it
would probably be much easier to just use the full sandbox.  There's a
long laundry list of things to deal with to get good isolation, and
the sandbox is basically a convenience tool for that list.  (IIRC, the
gui stuff had a bunch of subtle points, like taking care of the
eventspace etc.)
