I'm just thinking... may be you can make a symbolic
link to /usr..

you can make /usr/tmp with permission drwxrwxrwx then
make a symbolic link.. ln -s /usr/tmp /var/tmp with
assumptions /var/tmp doesn't exist

I already try this trick with my user directory and it
worked..but never had try for tmp directories..

If it works on tmp directories please tell me =)

btw: don't forget to umask the tmp directory

Good one
