i'm not keen on file duplication, it causes confusion.

i believe i committed the original then edited it.

mmm... ok...  except when it ends up being used outside of personal context.

so ChangeLog, no problem.  things being developed that aren't ready
(missing code, syntax errors) no problem.

the moment it works i would much rather it was in the location it's to be used.

basically if any public page has to cross-reference to a sandbox with
a link, "this page was autogenerated by code that is in a sandbox"
that's bad.

yes makes sense to me.
