rms asked me about sandboxing icecat.

I recommended some documentation like this:
"We recommend that you use a sandbox package with Icecat. Which one
depends on what package you already use and what is supported with your
version of Icecat on your distro. For the upstream Icecat, a recent
version of Firejail is probably the easiest to setup. For Icecat
distributed in a distro, apparmor or selinux are probably easiest."

But he suggested that most people wouldn't do anything because it's
difficult and vague, and that it should be setup to work out of the box.

I'm thinking some distros do have it sandboxed out of the box, maybe
fedora and ubuntu?
