On a slightly related note, with the new 2.6 kernel you now get suspend to 
swap. This can be slightly problematic if you have less swap than (in use) 

I see your point though, 2xRAM swap does seem slightly excessive, and is 
probably useless, unless you have a laptop that you wish to use swsusp on. 
Even then you'd probably only need a little bit more swap than you have RAM. 

Talking of which... is there anyway to assign X amount of swap, but only let 
the kernel use a specific amount?
