I think leaving the directory around in case of failures would be a
pretty bare minimum.  It's sometimes also useful to keep the remains if
everything was apparently successfull, but it's far less important imo.

To me it sounds like we shouldn't use a randomly generated temporary
name, but rather a static mapping based on the test's path or such, to
create the relevant temp directory.  Before a start a test could then
clean that up, that way the amount of remaining cruft would be bound by
the number of tests.
