e.g. run make sandbox INSTALL=helm to make the sandbox and automatically install the "helm" package. This saves the user from having to wait for package-initialize to finish, manually run package-install, and finally type in the package name and hit RET.

When trying to debug issues with packages installed into a sandbox, it becomes tedious doing all that manually over and over again. This makes it much faster, since you can just run it directly from the shell history.

automatically install the "helm" package.  This saves the user from
