but if you have large programs that may need to fork, it's not nessasarily the case that it's 'a slightly larger amount of swap'. I've seen people arguing your point of view toss off that a large system should be willing to dedicate a full 1TB drive just to swap so that it can turn overcommit off. in practice, if you end up using more than a gig or so of swap your system slows to a crawl
