Your quoting removed the fact that I was responding a statement that
ram was the "wrong place".  I was simply extending the comment. If
you're willing to say that ram is the wrong place for something then
there is nothing user hostile to say tmp is too.

Tmp already gets ruthlessly script deleted. It's really not a good
place to keep things you're planning on keeping for a long time, tmpfs
or no.
