Swap on RAID will not give you speed (it will slow you rather),
but a HD failure will not crash the server, because suddenly
the swap has gone.  And without stability even over the loss of
a HD -- what is RAID worth?  Speed you can gain by striping
partitions -- at the cost of having to hope that all HDs
survive, instead of a quorum as with RAID.
