octet.el provides functions and configurations to view attached
documents generated by Microsoft Office softwares, such as Word and
Excel, on SEMI-MUAs.  A SEMI-MUA is a mail user agent that uses SEMI
to display MIME-encoded articles.  Wanderlust and T-gnus are examples
of SEMI-MUAs.  SEMI depends on FLIM and APEL.

It means that APEL is a necessary part to use functions defined in
octet.el.  Therefore, it is unnecessary to replace make-temp-file()
with a home-made function, I think.

Well, I think that it is possible to recommend APEL as well as FLIM,
instead of depending on it.  How about this change, Mr. Ukai?
