As far as I can tell, the option to remove immediately is not portable.
It works on Unix, but I don't think it can be done on Win32 or OS/2, at
least.  Or at least that's what I gathered from the APR code for other
functions for those OS's when I updated apr_file_mktemp().  Remove at
close vs. don't remove is doable, at least.
