Right. Just to clarify for anyone else reading, we currently have:
openTempFile :: FilePath -> String -> IO (FilePath, Handle)
openBinaryTempFile :: FilePath -> String -> IO (FilePath, Handle)
which mask the mode, and we would add
openFileTemplate :: FilePath -> String -> IO (FilePath, Handle)
openBinaryFileTemplate :: FilePath -> String -> IO (FilePath, Handle)
which do not.
Theese functions are used like this:
openFileTemplate "/foo/bar" "bazXXX.ext"
and open a file called "baz143.ext". "bazXXX.ext" is the template.
