Apparently new with jessie. But neither the lone jessie install, or the 
only stretch install actually have files in that directory. If its 
there, why not make use of it?

Neither jessie nor stretch have a manpage for systemd.tmpfiles.

There is a manpage for systemd-tmpfiles, and apparently some of its 
callable subroutines.

I've read that manual, but with all the options, figuring out which one 
you need looks like a bit of Russian roulette with live ammo. And how 
does that work when /run is a link to /var/run? and it doesn't work thru 
links. Confusing without a lot more study.

Or have things changed that much while I was in the shop for 9 days 
filtering heparin thru my kidneys for a DVT in my right leg I got from 
sitting too many hours a day in front of this monitor?

Taint fun folks, take a break and do a loop around the house every 30 
minutes. You will be far better off for doing it.
