I know this is an old bug report, but I think it has even more relevance
today. My desktop machine has 4GB of memory and (IIRC) partman-auto
tried to create a swap partition that was 10-12GB in size. That's
wasting a ton of disk space. My real memory use (ignoring buffers/cache)
rarely even hits 1GB. I simply have so much memory because it's so cheap.

Automatic partitioning would have worked fine for my machine except I'm
not willing to sacrifice so much disk space to swap, so I ended up using
manual partitioning.
