Overall a great idea. I would vote for them being temporary in nature. Two hours is too short of a time however. A power-outtage in your area while you are working and that lovely bit of scrap you were going to save is now gone when the power comes back four hours later. Perhaps say twelve hours from the last time someone edited the scrap node. Or maybe even a full day. This way, if people are still interested in fiddling with the node's contents, it would be around. But, then again, if it is that interesting, then maybe it should be permanent after all! Absolutely no XP for creating or adding to one though.

[oiskuu]: I'm unfamiliar with android or SELinux. But I believe there is nothing of a kind. Unless you play with capabilities or build your own containers/ namespaces.
[davido]: I am not finding closing STDIN to be an adequate means of making getlogin return undef.
[Corion]: Maybe doing a double-fork (daemonizing) can make go that information away, but maybe not
[Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes
[oiskuu]: The useful bits that relate to your process can be found under /proc/self. What information are you thinking of? Tty name?
[tye]: I just daemonized and getlogin() still knew who I had been.
