IMO this is pointless

             total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 517456 505332 12124 111016 97752 236884
-/+ buffers/cache: 170696 346760
Swap: 131048 23216 107832

Of course for me, I'm not about to waste 1gb of disk space for swap.

The swap I have is 2 partitions, one on each drive both with a priority of
0. Personally, I like the way it's done on my box.
