ps. as an aside on this topic, performance of swpa files or swap
partitions is of course dreadful. However, I am tempted to try a big
solid state disk to see how well it would work.

As another aside, there is a UK company building solid state disks
from real DRAM chips (rather than flash). Their web page has some
pretty big claims.

And as a final aside, I run systems which don't have disks - you can
use swap over iSCSI on them, though of course at the other end there
is a disk!
