Seems to me the clean solution is to have a boot partition and a
swap partition, as some systems do.  Having the swap code guess how much
space to reserve is pretty ugly.

This does use up a partition, which brings up something I've been wondering
about awhile: why do we have a limit of only 8 partitions?  And
how much grief would it be to expand this to, say, 16?
