my 2c, with the size of HD's and the processing power we have now, I
really wonder if spending more than a second on deciding on a single
partition or not is worth it.  Are the amount of space lost - expressed
as a percentage of the disk really worth all the time being spent on it

And the cpu overhead for using separate partitions and lvm - again with
todays cpus....

my default laptop build is
partition 1 /boot - ext2 or ext3 about 500M - 1G
swap = to mem - my last 3 laptops have >3G memory so if I am swapping
there is something wrong
rest = 1 big partitions currently ext4
