I do.

When running Emacs ada-mode tests, I spawn lots of Emacsen. If each one
tries to native compile stuff, it just slows down the tests.

I could try to ensure the stuff is native compiled first, but that's a
maintenance burden.

What is the name of the "temporary directory" that is not deleted on
Windows? I can check it see if is created when I run my tests.

I don't need this for my use case.
