The F10 desktop we shipped on SD had swap.  Our current JFFS2 filesystem
doesn't support swap.  I don't think you have any evidence for us being
able to avoid a deal-breaker without adding swap, so I disagree.

If we can't find either a way to get a swap file working on JFFS2 or get
UBI working, maybe it does make more sense to use XFCE (and even that
might not work out well).  I don't have a desire to ship something with
worse performance than the F10 SD build.
