That is how one would hope it works. However, I have not read anywhere that it actually does that. I don't remember the details how they were laid out, but I don't recall talk of a sandbox for OS 3.x applications in OS 4? It was more on the lines that you can turn it on and off, and it will break some applications if on - and misuse of MEMF_PUBLIC may distort something as well? It would be cool, though, if it does have a sandbox.
