The Installer strongly suggests this, but when installing 6.10, I
managed to "fool" the installer and the system now runs Feisty
without any swap just perfectly.
Having a swap mechanism based on variable sized files would fit
todays demands a lot better than the current partition based one,
IMHO. While fixed size file based swap appears to work, I can't find
how to make those files resizeable automatically.

Did you ever work with a zillion of open applications and had to
"turn down" (quiet, energy saving) the machine somehow to continue
work the next day?
On my Macintoshes, sleep works so reliable, I never shut down. Saves
a lot of work if you don't have to worry wether applications are
capable to restore their previous state. Even if a compiler is in the
middle of his work, he'll continue after wake a few days later as if
nothing had happened.
