I think you may be, yes. The request in this thread requires making
direct use of the “generate a new valid temporary fielsystem path”
functionality already implemented in ‘tempfile’.

Implementations of that functionality outside of ‘tempfile’ are a fun
exercise, but miss the point of this thread.
