Ok, I overcomplicated things. But I've often wondered if it were 
possible, and how controllable was it. And what would I need it for? 
Building an editor program with waveforms, etc would be a big deal, 
but a simple note-taking recorder would seemingly be a good simple 
audio project.

Most programs that record audio have to record to a buffer file first 
anyway, so your temporary audio file could go to a temp folder in 
your system where such files are dumped automatically at shutdown. On 
Unix and Macs it would be the temp folder.  specialFolderPath("temp") 
returns "/private/tmp/501/TemporaryItems " on my mac.
