Subject: [gentoo-user] Any experience with swapfiles?

1 I have two machines with 4GB of ram and I've never seen either one use
2 swapspace (yet) so I'm thinking I could delete my swap partitions and
3 substitute a much smaller swapfile -- if it's safe.
5 Any downside to using a swap file instead of a swap partition, maybe
6 depending on which filesystem you use, or something? Security holes?
7 Any horror stories out there?
