I went ahead and increased it.

Device          1M-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity
/dev/ada0p3          3656        0     3656     0%
/dev/md97            6144        0     6144     0%
Total                9800        0     9800     0%

About an hour and a half later, the machine spontaneously restarted. After getting back in, dmesg is filled with nothing but swap errors except for one line:

pid 53649 (rsync), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space

after reboot there are two (??) rsync daemons running, and I do use rsnapshot which is using rsync hourly.

root     89523   3.6  3.0 119892 106724  -  S    05:25    0:17.10 /usr/local/bin/rsync --daemon --config /usr/local/etc/rsync/rsyncd.conf
root     39964   0.0  0.1   7252   1848  -  Is   05:21    0:00.00 /usr/local/bin/rsync --daemon --config /usr/local/etc/rsync/rsyncd.conf

The top one is the 'current' one listed in /var/run/rsync.pid and the other appears to be orphaned.
