Hello Peter,

I intended to have mozplugger 1.14.1 in Debian squeeze so I asked for
the permission to upload it (squeeze is frozen now).
Adam Barratt, a release manager, moved an objection which sounds

So far as I can see, the code basically does:

* try to generate<tmpdir>/<filename>

* if that fails, try each of<tmpdir>/001-<filename>  to

* if that fails, fall back to using mkstemp()

Is there a good reason that the code doesn't simply call mkstemp() in the
first place?
Could you explain the reason of your choice?

I suspect there was no answer which we accidentally missed, right?

Kind regards,
Philipp Kern
