Subversion has a custom routine for doing that, too.  You specify a
prefix path (like "/tmp/svn-commit") and a suffix (like "tmp") and the
result looks like "/tmp/svn-commit.12345.00000.tmp", where 12345 is, I
think, some pointer value, and 00000 is a monotonically increasing
trail-and-error countery thing.

Be great if APR grew such a routine, too.
