True, but nowadays I think of swap as something to keep a computer from crashing during peak loads, rather then something you would need during "normal" operations. If your computer needs swap for "normal" operations (other than as an optimalization), then you have a problem. And indeed, then it doesn't matter because you have bigger problems.
But I meant more the case when everything can fit in RAM, and you want to make it still faster.
