it is simply a fact that drop a 100 or 200 Gb file into tmpfs
will bring down each machine existing currently and in the next
No, it won't.
Also, the default partitioning scheme for the existing Fedora setup
(with /tmp on /) also won't support dupming a 100G file in /tmp, because
/ doesn't end up with 100G free.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
