Well, something is wrong, because if we are deprecating :data:`tmpdir` we shouldn't be cross referencing it from the non-deprecated docs.  The explanation of how the default value is calculated should be moved up to gettmpdir.

My understanding is that now that all functions accept a 'dir' parameter, the tmpdir global was deprecated because global state is bad, and if an application really wants to affect the global state it can use the one of the environment variables that are checked, which is more flexible.
