Maybe an encrypted swap is overkill in a home alone machine; I am now
idly wondering whether there exists any documented (and successful) remote

Why "remote" ? AFAIK, disk encryption is against physical attacks, not remote attacks.

Then again, as they say here, encrypting your
swap "ça ne mange pas de pain,"

Swap encryption per se does not. But swap encryption with a random key prevents hibernation.
