 In #34938 it was proposed to use a filter in the `wp_tempnam` function
 which was rejected in favor of ignore the query string when downloading a
 file. This, however can still propose a problem when someone is the
 function to download a tokenized file where the path can be long.

 In the case where the headers of the response provide a `content-
 disposition` header including a file name, it would be ideal to have the
 `download_url` function respect this file name and move the file name
 (which by default is the token in the path) to the file name requested.
