Re: /tmp as tmpfs and consequence for imaging software

$HOME seems like a very bad idea to me. At least if used by default...

Many universities (and i guess other places too) keep the homes on a file 
server and the rest locally.
This mean that having tmp on the home, potentially lot of network traffic 
would be generated by software using temp files and well, it would just slow 
everyone down for no good reason, since the file would be deleted soon.

Also, a temp file would use quota. That could be good or bad.. depends on what 
is actually wanted.
