[Bf-committers] FSA suggestion

The temp file names are derived from filename + scene name. The files  
are not deleted. That ensures:

- when you load a .blend, you can always quickly start compositing  
again (Rkey)
- when you have two or three blender projects open, the temp files  
won't conflict
- when more people use your computer, they won't delete your temp files.

Disadvantage: you have to clear the tmp yourself... one day we can make  
a 'clear blender temps' button though, to delete all caches, temp  
files, and so on.
