Having been bitten several times i disagree, i think for desktop/laptop
use you need 2 partitions, one big / with all system files, and 
one big /home for your personal files  which are far more precious than
system files. This way you can upgrade by reformatting the / and keeping
the /home. The /tmp can then be a tempfs.
