UploadStash needs this (ability to keep temp files across requests and read
them), although it uses the filerepo abstraction so I'm not sure if
$wgTmpDirectory is used directly or if the repo uses $wgUploadDirectory/tmp
regardless of what $wgTmpDirectory is. I think it's the latter, but it's been
too long since I touched it.

Neither does UploadStash, BTW. Maybe we should supply a cron job for this;
we're gonna need it on the cluster for UploadStash anyway, once it's used more
