Swap on software RAID1



I've been setting up software RAID1 and am wondering what to do about
swap.  According to the Software-RAID-HOWTO
(http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Software-RAID-HOWTO-2.html), there's
apparently an 'ongoing debate' on the virtues of using software RAID1
with swap.

I currently have same-sized partitions set up as swap and have them
set to the same priority level.  I'm worried that if one of the disks
dies, anything swapped out to that disk will fail, potentially causing
trouble.

Does anyone have advice on using swap with software RAID1
