Recently in the "Tips for managing your project" of `README-hacking.md', an item (called "Fast access to temporary files", under "Make Programming") was added to help in dealing with large files and using shared memory to keep temporary files between rules.

We can facilitate this process with several low-level additions to the template. For example, automatically defining the suggested `shm-template' in the core of the template, or deleting all files with this pattern from RAM when the pipeline stops (even because of a failure).

We can also define functions (for example in the project's `.bashrc') to remove specified shared memory files automatically while preserving the order (deleting the non-suffix file after all the ones with a suffix).
