[CentOS] Safe/sane tempfile creation?

I'm used to Debian-based distros which have a tempfile(1) utility for
safely and sanely creating temporary files.

There isn't a comperable utility for RHEL/CentOS systems.

I've been exercising Google-fu looking for a good robust tempfile
generation idiom, but haven't turned one up yet.

Hence this appeal to the lazyweb.
