Yes - but in my case, I have a file in tmp (created by mozplugger)
which I need to move to the journal. I can't keep the file in tmp (as
in copy-to-journal), since it may get deleted, and I can't write in
random places in /home/olpc (rainbow might not like that). In that
case, what would be the safest place to store the file ?
