The file placement needs to be configurable.  However, since most files are stored in /var, the logical original placement for these files should be /var/tmp, as a 'mv' would take place on the same filesystem, which is a much simpler (and faster) operation than moving files between filesystems.

/var/tmp definitely is a logical default since it's only writable by root and thus doesn't introduce potential conflicts for people making sym links that could get overwritten etc.

> /var/tmp ... is ... only writable by root

err, not in most installs.  it is usu 1777 just like /tmp....

sometimes one is even a symlink to the other

best bet is probably /var/spool/asterisk/tmp, which should be owned by whatever uid * is running as (or +g and owned by whatever gid * is running as, depending on admin's prefs).

I especially like the reading of options from the [options] section of asterisk.conf.  I wish we had a way to provide example documentation for asterisk.conf as we do for the other files...

Added to CVS with with the /var/spool/asterisk/tmp path.
