Why not?  The idea was to avoid the need for partitioning.  Those of us with 
dual boot Windows systems would probably have to keep the Windows partition, 
of course, and for your specific case, I'm not sure if it would help - I 
don't know if swsusp would handle partitions in LVM any better than using a 
swap file.

Odd.  I've always seen this quote without the word "logic", and I can't 
imagine why the addition of a word improves it :-)
