[Rd] Unified naming for R<system>_tmpnam possible?

What is the reason that the system specific files (sys-unix.c et.al.) all define a specific
name for building tmpfile?

In main/devPS.c then there is an #ifdef sequence which calls depending on the
system defined the respective function.

Wouldn't it be better just to have one function R_tmpnam(), which is implemented
system dependent in the sys-<system>.c files?
