[PLUG] How much swap do you need?

Just put 8gb of RAM in my laptop. (was: 4)  The system has a 4gb swap partition.
I was going to search the PLUG archives and maybe ask on the list about how much swap I need now.  A little 'Google' research led me to this at serverfault which I think this is a very good anaylsis:

I'm running a VM or two (via: Vagrant) and may experiment with Docker - so more RAM helps.  Apparently, keeping the swap is a good idea.  I'm kind of surprised but also convinced.
