Why bring up Make?  Make has no mechanism for dealing with intermediate
files (it removes _target_ files by default when the rule producing them
errors out).  So any removal of intermediate files has to happen by
writing it as part of an action.

You could equally well say "sometimes there are shell scripts that
remove intermediate files".
