RFE: add control for /proc/sys/vm/swappiness

As per this thread http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/3000 and the
resulting hoopla on slashdot -- it'd be nice to have an easy gui tool
for tuning the kernel's preference for swapping. A lot of people
disagree on what the correct policy ought to be -- and indeed, it's
different for a lot of situations -- so having it tunable via the gui
program seems desirable.
There's now a more detailed story on this on LWN --
Seems likely to be one of the most popular values to tweak.
sorry but s-c-proc is now deprecated...
Is it replaced by something, or is there a new magical thing which
automatically does the right thing for all situations and makes all
people happy? :)
