Two questions;

1) Shouldn't the swap size be twice the memory, or some such multiple?
And, I don't think the swap can be too big.  In other words, if I have
1GB of memory and create a swap size of 8GB, shouldn't I be good with
RAM upgrades through 4GB?  Are there issues other than wasted space?

2) Aren't swap files the recommended approach these days?
