If you just created a file in the tempdir it will be scanned by virusscanners while you will just want to delete it directly. (Which might trigger an access denied and then a wait loop)

I think you can safely assume that the file won't be removed from the pristine twice at about the same time, so just using the sha1 as the filename should be pretty collision safe. (And the wait loop will catch the other cases)

Note that we might assume that Subversion opens files with FILE_SHARE_DELETE, but we can't assume that other programs -like virusscanners, file indexers, etc.- triggered by our disk i.o., do the same thing. Especially since using this share flag has a performance penalty and allowing files to be deleted/changed while open makes it harder to test your application for correctness.
