I don't think /tmp as part of the rootfs is a good idea for the reasons
outlined in the rest of my mail. That leaves you with using tmpfs or
the installer having to ensure that there's a separate partition for
/tmp. If you do the later, however, you may just as well ensure that
there is a big enough swap partition and stick with tmpfs.
