deleting content of /tmp

Hi all

Can someone advise me on the pros and cons of deleting the contents of /tmp/ as part of general security conscious non-paranoia. I was thinking that it would be an okay thing to do periodically (or at logout, etc.) using a overwriting/shredding program. But, before I committed myself, decided it was prudent to ask.

Your thoughts please ...
