"/mem" implies it's going to be in memory, just like "shm" implies it's for shared memory. We don't have /nfs, or /disk. Not that "usr" or "etc" are particularly descriptive, but at least they're not actively misleading. /mem is a great name for something the sysadmin sets up, and then points things at; but it's a bad name for apps to use to get at their data. "/early" perhaps? "/etc/early-var" ? (The latter being a configuration option indicating where to put variable data that's needed early in the boot process; in the form of a symlink) Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> I don't speak for anyone save myself.
