    Has anybody thought implementing some kind on tmpfs so that the
    disk space consumed by swap partition(s) and swap files is also
    used as /tmp?

    I do normally use 128 MB swap and /tmp partitions on every system
    by default. Usually either /tmp or swap space is too small.
    Additional swap files help when running out of swap, but nothing
    helps if /tmp is full. It would be neat if I could get more
    (temporary) space to /tmp by creating additional swap files.

    My 0.01 euro,
