    Description

      A heap of plugins utilise temp files in the data directory for various things. This is a bad practice as it forces requests to be dependent on single servers which totally goes against scaling out practices. This functionality can be implemented in the sessions API, or possibly caching API depending on what the content is. There is no need for forcing filesystem storage unless the user chooses to have the filesystem as a backend.
