> Regarding the issue with virtual consoles and video cards with lots of RAM - 1 GB of video ram *is* a power user who could be expected to afford a few dollars extra for a few GB more of swap space

Even cheap comnsumercards (starting at 46 Euro here in Austria) ship with 256MB RAM and more and this will only rise. So maybe 1GB is a poweruser now, but in one or two years it could be pretty much standard. And even 256MB is something to worry about.
