[Python-Dev] Remove tempfile.mktemp()
I'm not sure the relationship with mkdir and mktemp here. I don't see
any uses of tempfile.mktemp in pip or setuptools, though they do use
os.mkdir (which is not deprecated).
Both pip and setuptools use pytest's tmpdir_factory.mktemp() in their
test suites, but I believe that is not the same thing.
