Geoprocessing Tool input SEDF output SEDF

Arcpy geoprocessing tools seem to accept SEDFs as input.  How can one output to an SEDF?  The only thing I can think of is to write to memory\tempOutput then convert that output to an SEDF with spatial.from_featureclass() but this seems a little too Rube Goldberg.  Any thoughts.  Thx.

That is the way I do it.  This would be a great enhancement.  It seems to me that ESRI just keeps reimplementing AML with its read/write to disk file paradigm.
