Ideally they would. However apparently the distro depends on
swap-thrashing ARM machines to let big packages build. This seems
crazy to me, but in those cases we're not running LP code, we're
running arbitrary end user code that can do nuts things. I want to
revisit this but its not the top of the pile.

What will that do for us?
