I wasn't the one who suggested /var/run/$USER.  I was actually thinking of
programs like ssh-agent which needs directories for users who invoked it.
In that case, /var/run/ssh/$USER can be done quite easily while doing the
same thing in /tmp and avoiding DOS attacks requires cooperation from the
system bootup script.
