I don't understand the context, but surely KISS means having SGE do
things for you if it can.  The SGE shepherd manages the job's $TMPDIR,
so if you write temporary data there it will clean up for you (unless
you have loose MPI integration, perhaps).  We won by chucking out our
vendor's open-mpi `integration' and using what's built in, while
ensuring scratch go in $TMPDIR; that saved a lot of grief with pcgamess,
in particular, filling up /tmp.
