No, no, you seem to have misinterpreted what I said :)

What I meant was:

1. the temp file passing mechanism used by the shell extension is
utterly forbidden from using /path to pass its temporary filenames in.
Instead, it uses a new parameter called /tempfile wherever it used to
use /path, thereby freeing up /path for the automation interface.

2. the existing automation interface should remain [almost] completely
unchanged. /path should still be used to pass the paths for any
automation command -- the *only* differences are that:
   (a) /notempfile is now optional (won't barf, and doesn't make any
difference if it's specified or not)
   (b) under no circumstances are anything specified in /path deleted,
since that option is no longer used for temp file passing.

Ergo, anything passed via /tempfile is always deleted, and anything
passed via /path is never deleted.

I think this all stems from the original misunderstanding. I'm
referring to the shell extension's temporary files here, not the
automation interface.
