Well, the programmer needs to know this in any case but in your usage scenario,
without additional information about what you are doing, I would tend to agree
that the information may be better encapsulated the way you did it.
As I said previously, I am opened to implementing what you need as a thin layer
on top of the "raw" swap capability.
That would satisfy your needs, correct?
