Yeah, Sander's already gotten a couple of responses along this line.
The idea of having a global cache was in my original proposal, but I
never figured out how to do it safely. Now, I feel like the cache
should be tossed out, for the thread-safety issue already mentioned,
but also because the library can be long-lived (think Subversion GUI),
and changes to things like a user's %TEMP% environment variable should
be immediately reflected the in temp-directory search algorithm.

Ooh! That another interesting data point. Thanks, Philip.
