This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Neat idea.  Low priority.  Right now, you can do https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Deployment_Guide/s1-swap-adding.html

I believe author is looking for the command to handle everything.  Have a patch? :)
