The x session files provide an interesting case, because many X apps
will get angry if they're used over NFS, so any large-scale system
(think ldap auth and automounted home dirs) would have issues. They
should be somewhere not in /tmp, nor in /home. /var/tmp would
potentially be a better place than /tmp
