    this remind me; perhaps you or Al could answer this.

    How hard would it be to have ramfs backed by swap? The goal being
    try to achieve something like a FreeBSDs mfs.

    I use ramfs for /tmp on my laptop -- it's very handy because it
    extends the amount of the the disk had spent spun down and therefore
    battery life; but writing large files into /tmp can blow away the
    system or at the very least eat away at otherwise usable ram. Not
    terribly desirable.
