Re: i-ram vs. tmpfs

Absolutely agreed that real RAM is better. I could see a situation where
you've maxed out the RAM (x86 motherboard/MCH limitations), and a RAM
swap device could be the next best thing, though.

Of course, might just be easier to add more boxes / cluster / load
balance. Which is I think, how the original thread started :)
