Snappy Swap

Hey all,

I was asked the other day about enabling swap in Snappy Ubuntu Core, and
it seems it's currently not possible. Admittedly not something that's
probably desirable by default (e.g. with just an SD card), but one can
still put the writable partition on an external HD, and one can put a
swap partition there too. There's just no way to make Ubuntu Core use it.

Is that something that should be supported?
