Using MFS for /tmp is the best method, but
(a) it cannot be used by default
(b) because of (a) nobody wouldn't commit a patch if I had sent one.
Adding only one line you can prune /tmp before shutdown, making a bit harder
to get the files from /tmp. STeve Andre' made a good example:
"I once had an important file on /tmp (dumb, I know) which I
hadn't moved to /u before shutting down. I was able to recover
it by booting into single user mode and moving it, but under
your scheme it would have been lost."
Which tools could you use to get that file if it was deleted ?
Are they already in the base system ?
