You want to have sdext be an auxiliary or primary place the /data/app partition? You can't on the M. At least I never found it.

Best thing to do, on JellyBean, is use my SD swap & then, at least, internal memory will just be used for that, /data.
See my button for a link.

My experience has been that it's mostly images and music that eats up the space on the phone. This data can be moved manually to the sdcard and most apps that use it will have an option to look there by default. My experience with so-called sd swap programs is that they tend to be clunky and unreliable, and I've lost data that way, so I don't do it any more.

I have a crap ton of apps installed on my M, and to date have never had a storage issue, but as everyone uses their phone differently, that may not be your experience. For whatever reason, Android stopped supporting the ability to move apps to sd, and apparently, unless an app is specifically designed to do so, data to sd went as well.
