Hi, y'all

A couple of people last night were commenting on how Debian cleans out
/tmp on boot, so I thought I'd have a look to see how hard it is to

Turns out it's quite easy: either edit /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh to remove
the cleaning completely (look for $TMPTIME), or bump up TMPTIME in
/etc/default/rcS so that it only deletes stuff older than $TMPTIME days
(the default is 0 aka delete everything).
