I cannot see how renaming the possible target directory to a temporary
directory instead of unifying it for both SQ and MQ could be any
simpler. IMHO this keeps the mess and fragile nature of the issue.

The approach taken here unifies the directory we should use for both SQ
and MQ and makes the deferral issue a completely separate issue
addressed in the last patch.
