I am never going to decide that I don't want any swap at all. In the
unlikely event I want more, I can add it from inside the VG.

If there is a person who regularly removes their swap entirely and
then puts it back again later then I imagine it would make much more
sense to have it inside LVM as well. I struggle to imagine such a
person, but I'm sure they exist in life's rich tapestry. For me,
it's not something I'm ever likely to mess with and if I did it
would be to add more, not take away.

Cheers,
Andy
