Ah, sorry, I missed that.

For some uses (like mine), a create mode parameter wouldn't hurt, either.

Then I suggest just passing a generic (void const *) argument to the TRY function. That way, each function can pass whatever extra info it likes, by packaging data up in a struct and passing the struct's address to __gen_tempname. __gen_tempname's existing FLAGS argument would be one of the things packaged up.
