No, I didn't.  I said templates are cached in memory, and the result page is 
constructed in-memory too before it is sent out.

To expand on that a bit, validator's code (the "check" script) does not 
currently directly use temporary files, nor does it instruct anything else to 
use them either.  However, the other Perl modules it pulls in (or the modules 
they in turn pull in or Perl itself) may however do what they want 
internally, and it's quite likely that OpenSP.pm is not the only one thing in 
the chain of dependencies using temporary files the way they see fit.
