Ah, yes - I'd forgotton that. When the pristine file already exists in
plain text, it's not a big problem to return its path even though we
can't promise how long it will live. But if pristine texts are stored
compressed and so we have to create a temp file in order to support that
API, when would we delete the temp file?
That was the big concern.
