Default tmpfs on OpenBSD

I'm using MFS (memory file system), because I believe I've enough RAM (3 GB) and want to protect my SSD from unnecessary temp files.
Basically that works great. But MFS ist sadly grow only.

The better (and faster: mail-index.netbsd(dot)org/current-users/2005/10/04/0002.html) alternative in my eyes ist tmpfs.

So I've interested read the release notes of DragonflyBSD, who shows that tmpfs are ported from NetBSD to that FreeBSD (4.8) based operating system: www(dot)dragonflybsd(dot)org/release26/

Wikipedia means, that in October 1995, OpenBSD forked as a new project from NetBSD (1.0).


Is anybody out there, who run tmpfs under OpenBSD? And if not, are there plans to port tmpfs to that platform, like DragonflyBSD did it before? The distant relationship from OpenBSD to NetBSD should make that not too difficult, or am I on the wrong tack?
