Um, /tmp is for system programs.  /usr/tmp is the place for user temporary
files.  A number of system V utilities support the convention of trying to
create files in $TMPDIR.  It might be better, then, to do
	echo '(set! $* (quote ('$*')))' >$scheme_temp
You'll want to keep track of the file name so that you can delete it.
