Use temporary directory to save updates

It seems counter-productive to store automatically downloaded updates in one of the user's profile directories when in most cases it will be installed at launch anyway. I propose storing the downloaded files in a temporary directory and automatically cleaning them up when the update is run. This could also be made optional.
I, for example, use my Downloads directory to store permanent files rather than temporary downloads, and I find it somewhat annoying to go in there after a while and find one or more update files that I did not choose to download or place there, especially if I have to delete them myself.

Bumping this issue as it is still an annoyance.
