description="""

When a system needs more memory but has free disk space it could auto create swap files and then delete them later.

The ideal solution would be configurable for:

* thresholds for creation
* min/max (don't fill up the disk entirely)
* encryption settings

The "listener" for the file creation should avoid thrashing, have timeouts, and handle disk space usage sanely.
