my genuine curiousity question is why you would bother to put swap on raid? I
suppose if you had a lot of swapping going on and a drive failed, it
could be catastrophic, but that's the only reason I can see. And this
may be more than enough reason... I wonder what the overhead for that
it though?

certainly seems workable to me, but I don't really know about these
things too much. Certainly, though (depending on how big your swap
is), 20G is enough for the system.
