What's the point of dropping /tmp and then reinventing it in another
place on disk? Everyone could just continue using /tmp on disk then...

If the point is to have /home and /tmp on the same partiton then:
# install  -d  -m  1777  -o  root  -g  root  /home/tmp
# mount  --bind  /tmp  /home/tmp
[edit /etc/fstab to have the mount permanent]
That gives /tmp on a /home partition without memory/swap headache.
As a bonus it will clean on boot automatically.
