[RFP]: mktemp

I'd like to contribute the 'mktemp' package from 
http://www.courtesan.com/mktemp/  The source code is distributed under a 
BSD-style license (http://www.courtesan.com/mktemp/license.html).

I have been using 1.3.1 for some time now and it seems to work okay. 
(Naturally, when I went to the website to check the license information, 
I saw that 1.4 had been released...so, I quickly updated to that 
version.)  However, 1.4 hasn't had the months of use that I've put 1.3.1 

So, I've put all of the following at cygutils:

Two questions:
   Can I add this package?
   Which version?


-src packaging structure:
$ tar tvjf mktemp-1.4-1-src.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r-- cwilson/None   3375 mktemp-1.4-1.patch
-rwxrwxr-x cwilson/None   4098 ktemp-1.4-1.sh
-rwx------ cwilson/None  65242 mktemp-1.4.tar.gz

Run 'mktemp-1.4-1.sh all' to rebuild both the -src and binary tarball. 
build, temporary installation, and temporary -src construction directory 
are all underneath the unpacked source.  The binary tarball contains:

$ tar tvjf mktemp-1.4-1.tar.bz2
-r-xr-xr-x cwilson/None   9216 usr/bin/mktemp.exe
-rw-r--r-- cwilson/None   1220 usr/doc/Cygwin/mktemp-1.4.README
