Doesn't really make much sense creating two files for just one function.
Couldn't xmkstemp() so somewhere else? You might argue that xgetpass
also does that, I just think it's an overkill...

Returning the file descriptor seems a more flexible interface instead of
the FILE's representation; the user can always use fdopen on his own.

the file isn't open on failure, just return NULL.
