Thank you very much for your patch!

I think we could avoid backporting code, if we created a temporary 
directory (and then a file with an arbitrary name and proper suffix 
inside it) rather than a temporary file.

>I don't see a solution for removing the temporary files, though.

Is it possible to somehow store the name of temporary thing that has 
been created? That way maybe we could re-use it on next invocation of 
the preview function and delete it in some kind of exit hook.
