Thanks for working on this.  I was thinking I could really use this
feature just this week (In my case I want my batch queueing systme to be
able to point /tmp at a directory I can delete when the job finishes so
users can't break subsiquent jobs by filling /tmp.).  I'll definitly be
keeping an eye on this work and plan to do some testing this week.  I'd
like to see this in 7.0, maybe even 6.2.
