swap file using gmirror?

As far as I understand, Swapoff="Yes" doesn't disable the swapfile, it just
purges it on shutdown or something. I'm not quite sure of the need of this
with mirroring but I do see it in the gmirror doc.

Subject: swap file using gmirror?

I'm running 5.4 RELEASE. I have two identical hard drives. I installed 
FreeBSD on the first drive and then
turned on gmirror. The 2nd drive sync'd in about 3 hours. I did create a 
swap partition, but part of the
procedure that I found to start gmirror adds

swapoff="YES"' to /etc/rc.conf

Is that the right thing to do? Should gmirror run without swap?
