This does not call finalizers on MRI, causing temp files to be left behind sometimes. There seems to be no way to call finalizers, even GC.start doesn't work. I too would like to see Tempfiles being cleaned up explicitly. Other than that, I've seen system administrators who are confused by the fact that such Tempfiles are not immediately cleaned up. Some people who operate websites that handle a large number of concurrent uploads are worried that they might run out of disk space because of this.
