Maybe just call the parameter BASENAME to begin with? :-)

I am also thinking that the flags and perms can be defaulted/provided by the
callback. I can't imagine RA needing to use some kind of fine-grained
changes over that.

Specifically, perms would APR_UREAD|APR_UWRITE|APR_UEXECUTE (unreadable by
group or world). Note this is a *temp* file, so those perms should be fine.

Looking at the flags... there are two defined by APR that could be
important: APR_BINARY and APR_BUFFERED. I would recommend RA-specified
flags, which are then mapped into APR flags. That will keep people from
thinking that they need to specify a bunch of the other ones.
