Unfortunately it wasn't as simple it seemed: upon testing with only changing delete=True, 
found that the problem was not solved.  Upon further debugging, recoded/refactored slightly adding 
allocateTempFileName() locally scoped function to try to clarify how the NamedTemporaryFile()
was actually being used.

We can't depend on the delete-on-close because the NamedTemporaryFile() is merely allocating 
a temporary name for real use by the zipfile open-for-write which fails (on Windows) if file
was not explicitly closed first.  

Hopefully the new patch (https://github.com/gitgitgadget/git/pull/301) will make this more clear.

Open to other suggestions if still not clear.

Thanks again,
Philip
