Are we to worry about braindead temp cleaners? I.e. I'm
sure other apps would have problems with braindead
cleaners, so should we waste resources dealing with
a problem that is not worth addressing?
Regardless, moving them to a configurable tmp
location is not a bad idea -- but I don't want to hit my NFS mounted
home dir every time I make a tmp file. So I'd make /var/tmp/<user> or
/tmp/<user> and point to that.
I'm unsure if real-time performance is super critical
with nmh. If going with /var/tmp/<user>, you still
do not completely avoid braindead cleaners since you are
still working under the system tmp directory.
