I just mount /var/log as tmpfs, just like /tmp and /var/tmp. I also
symlink /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts, but that's mostly because I share
the same NFS filesystem between two diskless frontends. About the only
thing that's being written then is the myth caches. You could probably
mount ~/.mythtv the same way, but who really cares if you loose any
data there.
