There's a performance gain unless you're really short of RAM and using
tmpfs forces stuff into swap.
Current db size here is:
-rw------- 1 root root 3154944 Feb 1 13:02 SpamAssassin.cache.db
so it's not exactly huge.
Oldest data in the cache is 55 hours old.
The only downside is that you lose the cache on reboot. It will get
rebuilt, so that's no disaster.
