Such a function would have to implement a loop that calls unique_path(), tries to create a file with that pathname, and repeats some number of times until the creation succeeds. Then, it would close the file and return the pathname. That code is non-trivial and would be a helpful addition.
That doesn't seem right either. It shouldn't be necessary to close and
reopen the file.
