I feel uncomfortable overloading the callback parameter in that way. The
value of the function pointer should not have operational side effects, such
as leaving or not leaving tempfiles in the working copy. It makes more
sense to me to make that explicit. If we currently require that
remove_tempfiles should be FALSE when no callback is given, we can document
it as such, and add an assertion in the function.
