An alternative would be to publish to such a temporary directory, then
have a post-publish command to run to finish building the document. This
is what I would have favoured before the asynchronous exporter (as
building may take a while so would be better done with an external
command), but now I would be very happy with using a temporary directory
for export (defaulting to the directory where the org file lives).
