Where did you read about that? :-?
Also, when hibernating, ram data is (or can be, not sure if all
distributions enable this feature) compressed and not all of its content
is in use... so just imagine a system with 12/16 GiB of ram, whould they
have to dedicate a 24/32 GiB of /swap disk space for hibernating?
