I was using /tmp on tmpfs (with $TMPDIR poining inside of /tmp)
for several years in ALT Linux. And by "use" I mean "build
packages using mock-like tool that creates chroots in $TMPDIR".
During all these years, my biggest problem was that tmpfs by
default allocates half of physical RAM for partition. So I just
allocated big enough swap and added a line to /etc/fstab with
appropriate size= option.
Having /tmp on tmpfs is not THAT scary, is you ask me...
