: since 4GB or 8GB of ram are pretty much the standard these days you could use a ramdisk for swap... ;D

Towards this end, my travel laptop running pcbsd has no swap configured.
I haven't run into any issues with this configuration yet.  I realize
the risks of some program going haywire and consuming all ram, but in
the past month of doing this, it hasn't materialized.
