For temporary files you can create a new file in memory via `FileSystem
memory` so you do not pollute your file system and the file will be
deleted later since the memory is volatile.

`file := FileSystem memory / 'tmp.txt'.
file ensureCreateFile.
file writeStreamDo: [ :s | s nextPutAll: 'Hello World' ].`
