Yuck - that means if /tmp is mounted differently than ., then using
mkostemp(,0) will force the wrong line endings (converting binary to
text, or converting text to binary, depending on which direction the
mismatch is between the mount modes).  If you aren't creating the temp
file in the same mount point as the target, then you cannot blindly rely
on automatic mount point file modes to do the right thing.

It's buggy anyway in all released versions of sed. I'll probably make the change---just, not yet.
