Erik, what do you think about the strategy of automatically setting the
cleanup flag when svntest is run with a RAM disk?

[[[
Improved RAM disk usage instructions for svntest, and general info.

* www/faq.html
  Added much more information about testing on a RAM disk.

* tools/test-scripts/svntest/svntest-run.sh
  When a RAM disk is in use, automatically flag Makefile test targets
  for cleanup to reduce overall RAM disk size. The trade-off of
  increased I/O should be quite reasonable, considering that the I/O
  will be against memory, rather than physical disk.

* tools/test-scripts/svntest/README
  Added a quick blurb about what "svntest" actually is/does. Altered
  RAM disk instructions to match up with new svntest-run.sh cleanup
  flag behavior, and updated pointer to FAQ URL.
