Unfortunately, his entails the file-preexisting, causing the same
EEXISTS problem as before:
$ cd ~/tmp
$ echo hello > a
>>> from tempfile import NamedTemporaryFile as NTF
>>> f = NTF(dir='.')
>>> import os
>>> os.link('a', f.name)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists
