other swap options?

I don't agree with your statement saying that "Chances are, with your 1GB of RAM, you never have any memory paged to disk".

I have 640 MB RAM (ok, not 1GB) but I still managed to create about 10 swap files (76,3 MB each) just by opening a 15 or 16MB JPEG with preview.app. other app running were : IE, ircle, finder.app, dock.app, terminal.app, that's all.

So I would say, chances are with 1GB of RAM you will have memory paged to disk sooner or later.

note that OS9 can open the same JPEG and even a 32MB JPEG without virtual memory, and it does it really faster than preview.app on OSX
