Description

While our VM is prepared to handle paging of anonymous memory, it's not yet implemented yet. Implement swap file support, try to intelligently handle the free space and the swap file (eventually allowing several swap files, or the reuse of other system's swap partitions - note suspend-to-disk issues with that), have a look at page compression, etc.

Finally, the swap file should be configurable. There is already the "VirtualMemory" preferences application that could be extended/changed as needed.
