Some installations and/or applications need a central $TMPDIR instead of a local one on each node. Although different queues can get
different settings here, some applications need both: one (preferred) local one for the scratch files, and a second to share data between
nodes for the job. Creating an temporary scratch directory is also less invasive than having additional queues.

By having a list for "tmpdir" in the queue configuration this could be achieved. For now it can be implemented by a prolog/epilog, but the
user has to set any additional $TMPDIR1, $TMPDIR2 and so on on his own (unless set in a startup_method). For each created $TMPDIR an
additional variable could be set, with an upper limit of 9, i.e. max. one digit added.
