It's created too late. And, if we create /tmp/alsainfo, there is
little merit of mktemp as /tmp/alsainfo could be a symlink. Simply
TEMPDIR should be what mktemp creates, and clean it up after

It's at least safer than the fixed filename on /tmp. I don't insist
on this option, though.
Anyway, --output-file=xxx would be a nice addition.

I don't think it's needed when uploaded (except for any debugging
Just my $0.02.
