Partman should support disabling swap in impractical scenarios

Bug Description

Binary package hint: partman-auto

Currently swap needs to be included or removed from a recipe without regard to how much ram is on a system. On high memory systems, it may not be desirable to include a swap partition. At that point it would take longer to hibernate than is practical and swap would not likely get used unless under heavy load.

So it would be good to be able to declare within a recipe only create swap if there is less than some predefined value of ram.
