I'm thinking about using zRam on my server. From what I've read about zRam, it apparently does everything tmpfs does and more.

Once zRAM is working, is there any reason to keep tmpfs around? Is there anything tmpfs does that zRAM can't do? Is there ever a reason to use tmpfs instead of or in addition to zRAM?
