Can anyone provide some experiences they've had with sand caps?

Does it really pose a problem with dirt?
NO

Am I going to have a mixed mess of soil and sand after a year?
NO

Or should I stop whining and go for it.
YES

Feel free to suggest any other (black) fine substrates you've successfully used to cap dirt.
