The real difference now is that I used to be able to create an empty

Yes, the "out-of-place" build functionality, as we unofficially called
it, is not supported anymore. Really, I was surprised to hear that
people used this feature so much for checkouts. After all, I thought you want to *work* in a sandbox, not install from it or anything (otherwise
you wouldn't need a sandbox...).

Define "sandbox". For me it is not the checkout of the software itself, it is the built-out $SOFTWARE_HOME. It was a little easier to create several such sandboxes (e.g. one with Python 2.3.x, one with 2.4.x) using the "out of place" build.
