Why no flag to unlink a file on creation?

Hello, I'm not too familiar with the internals of the kernel, so this question might be stupid, and I'm not sure whether this is the right place to ask about it, but anyway: Why is there no flag for the "open" syscall to specify that you want the file you're opening to be deleted? I think that it would be very useful in combination with O_CREAT - you could create temporary files without actually leaving files on the filesystem, given that the filesystem supports it. Jann Horn
