so long as you are setting a path, why not set: /tmp/ and so
signal that it is readily discardable content?
The files are mode 0644 so if you care that people can read which hosts
failed to update you'll want to lock down more than imply /tmp/. Other than
that, it seems like a decent idea to auto-reap these since they're coming
from a cron job and we aren't going to retry manually.
+1 to setting HOME for the cron job in any case.
