from the man page:
. . .
The `sticky bit' is not described by POSIX. The name
derives from the original meaning: keep program text on
swap device. These days, when set for a directory, it
means that only the owner of the file and the owner of
that directory may remove the file from that directory.
(This is commonly used on directories like /tmp that have
general write permission.)
