Yes, this is a great idea. But don't forget that, if you have /tmp
mounted on swap, then your left over swap space is like a big RAM disk,
so it isn't "really" wasted. Besides, even though you can swap to a
file, swapping to a dedicated partition is going to be a bit faster normally.
How I do this on NetBSD_1.1? If I have two smaller partitions (50 MB
each) dedicated to swap, and I mount /tmp on swap, can I put more than
50 MB of files in /tmp?
