I usually have 4Go of swap after few day (i never reboot, except when mac os
x is too slow) i guess to much swap space reduce performance too much..
It's not cool to reboot to free swap file, need to temporarily bookmark all
my safari tabs (google search & co) because it can't autosave tabs url when
closing, that's not cool, etc...
And i'am wondering why there is so many swap file, i have 1Go of ram, and
don't launch a lot of apps (or at least app that don't need to much ram,
except safari that take 100Mo usually... Don't want to know how it's coded)
And of course i have 1/3 of memory available... I would like them to be

Closing sessions is the fastest way to free swap files, because of course
you stop all apps that have start after boot, ho no you may have started a
deamon or something else but try i guess you will see like me that stopping
all GUI apps is generally sufficient, so swap files can be free
I hope a day darwin will be able to do something like swap defragmentation
to reallocate data from swapfileN to swapfileN-1 but may be i'am dreaming
