Actually, depending on how the OS's scheduler works, swapping will *help*
your keyrate. While a thread is waiting for pages to come back off of disk,
the scheduler will give time to other processes that are not pagelocked.

Though, in the end, whatever app is swapping will probably use just as many
CPU cycles anyway... *shrug*
