You mean you know some real applications becoming noticeably faster
having /tmp on tmpfs?

That does not work. I tried that.

When I say "Hey, a lot of software breaks because of your change", I get
the answer "It's not my change in fault, it's the software, go fix it".
This is exactly what I got in that thread, by the way.

But when I say "Hey, your change have broken a lot of software and
brought nothing good", then people start thinking, why should they mess
with fixing a lot of software, if they get nothing in return anyway.
This is what we have with "/tmp on tmpfs" change.
