Some imprecise language on my part has apparently lead to some
misunderstanding of what I am suggesting.

I don't mean a swap file that gets used as swap. I meant file(s) which
are on / (or some other large filesystem if / is not large) which are
used to handle /tmp growing beyond the bounds of the memory assigned
to it. These file(s) should be orthogonal to the current memory
management system. [I know that using a swap file can currently do
this to some extent, but it has other problems.]
