It's already there in 0.2 (/usr/local/bin/iptables) - haven't mentioned it because I've disabled it in kernel (I had not idea it can be useful on Archos) - will put it back in next rel.
From what I experienced my swap was used for one or two MiBytes worth of bits, but I didn't measure it during heavy duty. Will see if I can crank it up by starting some games, the amiga emulator and a web browser with some complex pages opened. Anyhow, with at least 8 GiBytes flash memory onboard and even more on sd cards, I don't see the point in keeping it so low. Doesn't hurt to have more around like, say 256 MiByte.
iptables are essential for adblock and droidwall. Both are very useful to keep traffic low and apps away from the internet.
