How does having it zeroed rather than randomized make it easier for an
attacker to find the encryption key? Let's keep in mind this is "just"
swap, too: if I'm not mistaken the key is different every boot.

Marc Deslauriers already put this Wishlist, and I've asked some input
from the Ubuntu Security Team about this; but I think Wishlist is
correct for now, so we'll keep this as a nice to have for the next
ubiquity upload (soonish anyway, really), unless I get some information
to point to this being a major issue to address right now.
