Paraphrasing what Roger told me on #tor-dev yesterday:

There's a guy in Sweden, trams, who has been helping helix sandbox Firefox in TBB on OS X. Basically, it wraps the application like the OpenBSD permissions wrappers. If we do it right, it will become safe to let Flash run inside it. At least two sponsors want it. It's a lot of work though. The overall goal is to make it work on "all three" operating systems. This task probably doesn't need much Nick or Roger time, but maybe some Mike or Jake time.

("Tor bundles/installation" was my best guess. If there's a better component, please change that.)
