But if you think I can go without a swap partition without issue (either in using the OS or from the installer screaming at me the way older versions did when I tried to go swap-free)...
    Scream at you? No, but it'll ask if you're sure. Another approach you could take with Windows would be to do an initial install, remove what you want then create an image. I've done this and the image restored nicely. I've never tried to image a restore partition, delete the restore partition then try to reinstall so don't know if that would work or not.
