> Please let the user decide if using a /tmp noexec mount point is more secure or not.

That doesn't even make sense. It's a fact that mounting /tmp with "noexec" doesn't give you any extra security simply because you can simply circumvent it by invoking the executable with the help of the dynamic Linux loader.

Anyone who wants to run an exploit can just run "lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 /tmp/bla" instead of just "/tmp/bla" and it will just work. For scripts, you just invoke them through their interpreter.
