I want to put it where each bootable version can access it. I don't
want to carve 1G out of each of the partitions, so /home/swap is
a reasonable compromise. Each partition then has /swap as a symbolic
link, to make it easy to find.

If you have a better suggestion, I'm open to it. I don't like a
separate partition, though.
