If you use "lib", it will be stored in cache increasing size of the 
stored data and requiring more memory on each request. If you do not use 
this lib object in other parts of the system (for example, templavoila), 
it will be useless but take resources. So "temp" is preferable.

Exactly because it can be reused in other parts of the system.
