Why in the world would anyone want to have a /tmp in a distributed
file system? It's bad enough as it is on a local disk. The only reason
for having sticky bits on a local file system is that it's a major
administrative overhead to create separate temp directories for each

An add-only directory in a distributed file system makes sense
however, but not a full-blown temp directory.
