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.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
