Didn't say unreasonable, just there are many ways around this. Have
your modules create subdirectories. Anything in a tmp folder (esp!
/tmp) is not guaranteed to stick around at all.

If you set it to be somewhere under your control (i.e. not /tmp), then
it won't get removed and you can make subfolders and all that other
good stuff.
