That was an XO-1 comparison though.
I haven't heard of similar problems existing for XO-1.5, but my field
experience there is much less. Are there known situations where adding
swap actually helps?

Another thing to consider would be the current series of patches going
into Linux that improve interactivity under high CPU/memory pressure.
Certainly candidates for inclusion if we can briefly show their value.
