I don't think that is quite true, I believe swapspace will
automatically adjust the size of the swapfile.  I did have some
problems with swapspace (around Ubuntu 15.04 I think, maybe earlier)
where it started consuming 100% of the processor.  I think it may have
been to do with suspend/resume if I remember correctly.  I switched to
using a regular fixed size swapfile and have had no problems since.
As Josef said it appears swapspace is no longer supported [0]
