	I'd have to agree on this point.  Many other UN*Xen use
something like c201d3s0 to be the device for SCSI address 3 sub 0
(201 is some form of hardware path) that our HP here uses.

	Worse, IMHO, is the fact that you might have to recompile your
kernel to change what drives you're swapping to.  'Course we really
need an overhaul there, too, to add file swapping and the ability to
add/subtract swap.
