I know you're probably itching to do some Perl scripts for monit :-)
but won't the same permission argument apply for an external script?

When removing temporary files, monit could just check that the
effective user running monit has permission and if not, simply do not
remove the file? (I know too little about NFS but permissions are
probably tricky with NFS, yes?)
