Wouldn't the choice of filesystem have a significant impact on the
behaviour? (speed, persistence, need for an actual disk, etc...)
Perhaps forcing it might not be a good idea, but it seems like
requiring something to be configured, and not having a good default
that is known to work, will cause an unnecessary waste of time
for anyone that might try to use this.
