I think we are focusing a bit too much on super expensive computers here.
Of course on a computer with 1TiB of RAM it is faster to keep /tmp on ram. 
Also, given the availability of a reliable power source i would decrease the 
frequency of syncs to disk, in order to work mostly on buffers on ram.

Unfortunately debian targets also different devices, such as ARM network 
attached storage with huge disk and 32MiB of RAM.
