swap space size

Hi all,

There is an issue that I do not fully understand that I have always kind of
taken for rote.  I was told back when I first started working with Unix that
the swap space needed to be at least twice the size of physical memory in
order to ensure a stable system.

Is this truly the case?  How big of an issue is it?  What are the reasons
behind it.
