I've recently started playing with NetBSD and notice that by default it mounts /tmp as an MFS backed by swap. A quick read of the md, mount_mfs man page would lead me to believe that

     md /tmp rw,async,-s1024m 0 0

will move my /tmp dir to a swap backed 1G space. This would make me feel much more comfortable about my continuing adherence to the practice of giving my machine twice as much swap space as they have memory.

Are there any downsides to this?
