Shared pages and similar?

Seens like top's "SWAP" column is simply VIRT-RES.

Let's not also forget that read-only executable code just gets discarded
from memory, and not pushed to swap. If needed again, it gets read back
in from the file.

Oh, it's supposedly also bad to renice X to -10 with recent kernels ;-)
