But the mkimage etype creates its own files to pass to mkimage anyway,
using entry.GetData() in collect_contents_to_file() without reaching
into subentries' files.

More specifically, what I'm thinking of is removing check_fake_fname()
entirely, instead of managing/removing the files it creates. At a
cursory glance, only blob and blob-ext-list seem to use that directly.
