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.
"Wrong" in general has been used here as a generic excuse to "do
what's best for the user, and they'd better like it because they're
wrong if they don't do what we tell them".
IMHO *telling* the user how to manage /tmp is wrong, whichever side of
the argument you're on. *Asking* them how to manage it is the right
way. That was my point in that mail.
*I* want /tmp on disk. I still don't want someone else telling me I
have to do it that way.
