My fault!

Initially I searched mktemp, and have found usages in distutils, tests, 
and few other modules in the stdlib. When I wrote the last message I 
repeat the search on the wider set of Python sources, but for *mkdir* 
instead of *mktemp*! Thank you for catching this mistake Paul.

Actually, seems mktemp is used exclusively in tests in third-party projects.
