You want those pages to get swapped out quickly so that the precious RAM can be used more productively; by the buffer cache, if nothing else.

most modern virtual memory OS's don't swap out unused pages, instead, 
they swap IN accessed pages directly from the executable file.  only 
thing written to swap are 'dirty' pages that have been changed since
