Git.pm: Add faculties to allow temp files to be cached
This patch offers a generic interface to allow temp files to be cached while using an instance of the 'Git' package. If many temp files are created and destroyed during the execution of a program, this caching mechanism can help reduce the amount of files created and destroyed by the filesystem. The temp_acquire method provides a weak guarantee that a temp file will not be stolen by subsequent requests. If a file is locked when another acquire request is made, a simple error is thrown.

+=item temp_acquire ( NAME )
+
+Attempts to retreive the temporary file mapped to the string C<NAME>. If an
+associated temp file has not been created this session or was closed, it is
+created, cached, and set for autoflush and binmode.
+
+Internally locks the file mapped to C<NAME>. This lock must be released with
+C<temp_release()> when the temp file is no longer needed. Subsequent attempts
+to retrieve temporary files mapped to the same C<NAME> while still locked will
+cause an error. This locking mechanism provides a weak guarantee and is not
+threadsafe. It does provide some error checking to help prevent temp file refs
+writing over one another.
+
+In general, the L<File::Handle> returned should not be closed by consumers as
+it defeats the purpose of this caching mechanism. If you need to close the temp
+file handle, then you should use L<File::Temp> or another temp file faculty
+directly. If a handle is closed and then requested again, then a warning will
+issue.

+Releases a lock acquired through C<temp_acquire()>. Can be called either with
+the C<NAME> mapping used when acquiring the temp file or with the C<FILEHANDLE>
+referencing a locked temp file.
+
+Warns if an attempt is made to release a file that is not locked.
+
+The temp file will be truncated before being released. This can help to reduce
+disk I/O where the system is smart enough to detect the truncation while data
+is in the output buffers. Beware that after the temp file is released and
+truncated, any operations on that file may fail miserably until it is
+re-acquired. All contents are lost between each release and acquire mapped to
+the same string.
