data remanence (was: Some legal trouble with TOR in France)

Has anyone tried creating a (ro) flash-boot linux system for TOR with all the (rw) stuff mounted in RAM ?

Such a device would raise the bar quite a bit, no? (AFIK, there is no data remanence problem with DRAM .. unless $they can stop the clock and keep power applied).

(seeing the $agency come in with a UPS and trying to splice the A/C without shutting it off, and then carrying out the server on battery power conjures up memories of a certian Seinfield episode).
