Oh, my prompts have looked like sometimes, and 'll' is an alias in
Bash for me too. But I think Brane's point is, we shouldn't create
the scratch dir at all if we aren't going to succeed in adding it to
revision control. While client-side operations are not required to be
atomic, it would certainly be nice to be atomic where we could... :-).

Brane, want me to file an issue or are you on this? (I'd just fix it,
but I've got local mods already undergoing 'make check' right now.)
