    I think it just comes down to recognizing the utility of tmpfs and
    the need for more swap space to accomodate it.

    For the installer I think the auto-generated swap size should be based
    on the size of the disk, leaving in the minimum based on the amount of
    memory.  so e.g. we do not want to configure 32G of swap if the hard
    drive is only 64G.

    Say, no more than 10% of the disk (maybe even no more than 5%).  I'm
    not sure what the best calculation should be.
