This is a simple patch implementing a dedicated KDevelop temporary directory (on Unix). With this, every session has its own directory for temporary files under the default `QSP::TempLocation` directory, set via the `TMPDIR` env. variable. The clang parser's preamble* files go here, for instance, but also any files the session creates under `QSP::TempLocation` itself.
The entire directory is removed during a clean exit, and also at startup. This takes care of preventing the accumulation of (large) old temporary files I tend to get on Mac.
Tested on Mac and Linux. Processes launched by KDevelop will also see the new directory as their `TempLocation` but I haven't noticed any unwanted side-effects in my workflow. Processes spawned by the session and outliving it may run into issues but how common are those? (The only such processes I create are other KDevelop sessions which are evidently not concerned.)
Setting TEMPDIR (or TEMP) instead of TMPDIR may have the same on MS Windows(?)
