Having the swap partition on SSDs would be the wrong thing to do,
SSDs have a limited write life, thus what you want is data that
rarely changes but is highly accessed. My understanding of a swap
partition is that data is swapped in and out thus I would expect a
high percentage of writes.

If true for the current generation of SSD's, then the criticism would be
equally valid, if not more so, for the iSeries.
