All applications should get the setting out of the process environment
and not poke in the registry to find some system settings or whatnot.

The system settings for TEMP are used for Windows services, as they
don't run under the interactive users credentials. This includes the
services created by PerlSvc.

There is a very good reason to have per-user TEMP directories, as that
can prevent race conditions in multi-user environments (Remote
Desktop/Terminal Services). Another reason for separate TEMP
directories are user access controls. If normal users can modify files
in the system TEMP directory, then it leaves system services open to
privilege escalation attacks.
