Re-enable old style auto-save for TextEdit (with a real "Save As...").

hmm I think I misunderstood what you were trying to do.
Once you have unsandboxed TextEdit, you are actually looking to edit the preferences from the standard home directory:

defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/ ApplePersistence -bool no

It seems the defaults command is smart enough to look inside the containers directory for sandboxed apps. I didn't know.
