IIRC FreeBSD's uses a swap interleave of 4. So peak performance is
gained by creating swap on 4 different "spindles".
All partitions should be the same size, and I seem to remember there
being a good reason why the size of an individual partition should be no
smaller than the size of your RAM. Alas, I can't remember the reason
now. But it was, as reasons go, a very reasonable one.
