We introduced osl_replaceFile in
https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/60163, which is designed to
minimize the overhead when replacing the target - so that it's still
possible to create a temporary file next to the destination, and then
make a cheap replacement. Is the problem that the initial place of
creation of the temporary file is somewhere else, not next to the target?
