Of course you can, you have the source. However, it appears that no one
has implemented that particular feature for you yet. Maybe it is because
they have better things to do that move 300KB of files from the kernel's
caches to a disk filesystem from where it will be loaded into the
kernel's caches. That's the key point, that you don't actually save
memory by moving the files to a disk unless you are REALLY low on memory,
and then you have bigger things to worry about.

Nothing that I know of, then. But I* thought if sometime later down the road some braindead dev assumes that everyone uses udev and hardwired his/her package to assume /run exists, I'm covered :-)
