Should I create a file on Dom0 and assign it for a DomU for use as swap space or should I just overcommit my system RAM and have Dom0 handle all of the swap?

What happens with swap space during a live move if I use a file per DomU. Does the move script copy the swap file over as well?
If you do a live migration, it does indeed move the state. I like to use a separate swap partition oon DomU to ease bare metal restorations and off-line operations on DomU's files.
