[OpenIndiana-discuss] Swap during install

I noticed that I usually have to grow the default swap installed by OI or XStreamOS, because the
default text installer set up following some rules (stated inside the python sources):
memory        type           required    size
900mb-1G      zvol            no          0.5G (MIN_SWAP_SIZE)
1G-64G        zvol            no          (0.5G-32G) 1/2 of memory
64G          zvol            no          32G (MAX_SWAP_SIZE)
I find these settings very limiting, as I remember being told for Solaris 10 to make swap double the available RAM (while here it keeps it half).
What do you suggest?
