We still have 10d and 30d clean-up for that. With one addition though:
/tmp is also flushed on reboot.
I know, but if people who want something not-ram-backed are switching to
/var/tmp, they're _also_ getting this different clean-up behavior as a
side-effect. (Different in that it went from 10 to 30.)
