15 no, but I might be forced to use it later when udev >=181 becomes
16 stable.

20 The only I know is shutdown, when / is remounted read-only.

24 I do not see any advantage in having /run on tmpfs.

29 I'm not sure it is true. I have read somewhere that tmfps is
30 never moved to swap. Anyway, I prefer not using swap at all.

35 I always liked Gentoo because it gives me complete freedom
36 and control over my system. *I* could decide what I want to
37 use or not. And I'd be very dissapointed if Gentoo one day goes
38 to "YouCanNotTurnThisOffBecauseWeKnowWhatIsTheBestForYou" way...
