We already discussed this in the past.

A heck of a lot has changed in 8 years and most, if not all, of the
concerns discussed back then are less relevant, if not wholly

Please provide any objections based on the realities present in
year, 2020.

They have not changed. Specially, the humans using it.

I think the implication that we have to wait for people to die before we make
improvements to the distribution is a little extreme.

You are not getting it.

People are using /tmp, not software, to store things, and some of them can be gigabytes. We really do not want that to go into ram.

And then software use /tmp for things like downloads. Like firefox.

Then, there are people that do not reboot their machines in days, or months. It doesn't help to have all that in ram, nor to not have old files deleted before a reboot.

Cheers / Saludos,
