mktemp: Please add an option which creates a fifo
instead of a file or a directory.  "--fifo" seems appropriate,
although the abbreviation "-f" might be confused as a request
for an ordinary file; and "-p" as in "--pipe" is already taken
for "prefix".

Thanks for the report. However, I'm inclined to mark this bug as a duplicate of 6330, for the reasons already documented in this long thread:
