Although swap going offline causing "a system crash" was a bit of an
overstatement. More likely, some user space applications would crash, allowing
a graceful system shutdown - once in 15 years or so.

What is of primary value of using RAID-1 for me is protecting my data against
disk failures.

As for continuous system availability, yes I am willing to trade it a bit on a
non-critical system for better disk utilization and performance.
