--scratch

:-)

Seriously, *if* we ever implement the other per-phase scratches, I
think having one overall --scratch and fine-grained per-phase
specifications fine. I don't think we need to go overboard to have a
way to say I want phases X, Y, and Z to use scratch A. Meaning that
you could just use --X-scratch=A --Y-scratch=A and --Z-scratch=A.
