   For my needs this will be perfect - I have encrypted /home but I did not 
have luck getting encrypted / like my ubuntu friends - so I need to 
cryptographically clean /tmp and /var/tmp on shutdown on my laptop for 
security purposes. I plan to use a script which uses shred and tmpwatch to 
clear them out.

  Thank you ... I will try this.
