It's an option if hibernation works with swap files - I wasn't sure, and I
don't see anything in there (otoh, it specifically mentions needing swap
for hibernation, but doesn't say it _won't_ work with a file).

That's the first time I've seen that swap files should be as fast as swap
partitions, now.  Nice to hear, because it really simplifies setup (though
it really should be possible to use mkswap to specify the size, instead of
having to go through dd).
