 r31749 is a concern.

 `script-loader.php` is a file which gets included in `load-scripts.php`
 and `load-styles.php`, our script and style concatenators.

 Since r31749 `script-loader.php` now calls
 `request_filesystem_credentials()` directly, which in turns calls
 `get_filesystem_method()`, a function which performs a write, read, close,
 and delete action on a temporary file (unless you've manually defined

 We need a better way of determining whether we need to request filesystem
 credentials. My suggestion would be to trigger an AJAX request which
 returns the result of `request_filesystem_credentials()`, rather than
 calling `request_filesystem_credentials()` in `script-loader.php` just to
 populate a JS boolean.

 I don't think beta 1 should ship with the current code.
