branch: master
commit 01aee1e6e270f49536caa1ecbffd1f181405c557
Author: Gregory W. Chicares <address@hidden>
Commit: Gregory W. Chicares <address@hidden>

    Construct a unique temporary filename to avoid collisions
    Replaced a static filename with a uniquified one. Added a recipe line
    to remove that file after use. Noted an open question: is the former
    static filename, now still used as a target name, utterly arbitrary?
