re: Prefer pageing to swapping

   I notice that is swapping even when not paging. This patch
   changes the pagedaemon to prefer paging to swapping, and ups the minimum
   free limit.

the 20 -> 200 divisor change should become based on memory size or
something else.  the 20 value was valid for a particular memory
size and while the 200 value might be valid for the machines you're
using that isn't true for everything.  i think this needs to be some
thing that is based on ram size, but with some other calculation
that works out higher for low ram systems.

it definately it too much for modern high end systems.
