/var/tmp has a little problem: is not cleared upon reboot.
In fact one time i couldn't do a graphical login anymore because the kde-stuff 
in /var/tmp had taken the entire available space on the partitin.

Also i was thinking that if we consider the amount of IO that kde does on the 
home of the user, and the amount that does on /var/tmp, and of course the many 
libraries that it needs to load, and so on... In the end the activity on /tmp 
compared to the activity in general is so small that i doubt keeping tmp on 
the ram is going to have any positive impact at all on performances.
