Freebsd without swap?

I lost a hard drive in one of my machines here. Fortunately, the only 
thing on it was /tmp and a random storage partition I used as a dropoff 
point for backups before they get ftp'd to another machine. 
swap partition. So how dangerously am I living to run this machine 
without any swap until I get my hands on a replacement drive? Frankly, 
it doesn't eat into the swap much at all on regular basis. Thanks for 
the help.
