Sounds like a good idea.

* call the variable "sbox" rather than the rather barren "b" (baton?)
* wc_mkdir() and friends will need prefixes...
I would also recommend some commentary about pool usage.
Implementation-wise, I would recommend creating a subpool in the
create() function, putting the struct in there, and having a
sandbox_destroy() function which throws out that pool. I don't like
the idea of a test suite growing without bound because the individual
test cases aren't clearing some pool. The sandbox lifetime seems a
good marker for when to clear the pool.
