Amaury did not suggest to use openat, but the new opener argument to open, which was especially added for use cases such as the one discussed here:

    open_exclusive = lambda path, mode:, mode|os.O_CREAT|os.O_EXCL))
    fp = open(filename, 'w', opener=open_exclusive)

That’s why this bug was initially closed as duplicate.
