/tmp in swap space

I recently saw that Solaris shares the drive space for swap and for the
files in the /tmp directory (/tmp is mounted from the swap partition as
filesystem type swapfs).

Has anybody thought about this? Has this already been done for linux in
some patch somewhere? Are there solid reasons not to do this? would a
significant performance impact be unavoidable? Would it be difficult to
use the ulimit settings for quota on the '/tmp-filesystem'?
