Nick> What does this offer over using NamedTemporaryFile(delete=False)?

Nothing I suppose.  I wasn't aware of the similarity of the two (I always
use mkstemp()) or the delete arg to NamedTemporaryFile, and assumed Guido's
complaint about mkstemp's shortcoming indicated that the functionality he
desired didn't exist.
