1. what's the big deal about tmpfiles? This is the 3rd bug I've gotten about them and I don't see the importance, there isn't much of anything in there.

2. I've applied a patch upstream for this.

Maybe I'm anal, but IMHO it's nice to cleanup after yourself.
In our case we run continuous build, and part of it is createrepo so it accumulates quickly.

Thanks.
