That is true but in this case, AFAIK, with the maemo control panel
you're building a swap file on a FAT32 file system. That would most
likely result in a different performance metric than if you built a swap
file on top of ext3 or used a raw swap slice. Someone please correct me
if I'm wrong, however, as I've considered partitioning up my own SD
cards. I do know that the I/O throughput varies greatly from card to
card which is why the high speed SDHC cards are more expensive depending
on the speed class. q.v. http://www.sdcard.org/developers/tech/speed_class
