[Wlug] tmpfs

When researching the Reiserfs a while back, I discovered the tmpfs
file system and the --bind option to mount.  Both of these are nice
tools to have around.

--bind has made it into the mount man page, but the tmpfs is not
documented in the man pages anywhere I can think to look.  Does anyone
know of a reason that it should not be used?  I'm thinking of using it
for some locking files and pid stamps -- all stuff that should not
persist across a reboot.

TIA,
