I've accidentally discovered this in kernel:
compcache [link] creates block devices like /dev/zram0, acting like a swap device. But it's using RAM actually, compressed. I can feel the difference on my 1gb-ram netbook a little.
It's not a new project, I don't know how did I miss this.
Setting up a "ramswap" is pretty easy. Here is my /etc/conf.d/local:
modprobe zram num_devices=2
echo 67108864 > /sys/block/zram0/disksize
echo 67108864 > /sys/block/zram1/disksize
echo 1 > /sys/block/zram0/reset
echo 1 > /sys/block/zram1/reset
I guess you got the message ;)
#EDIT: conf.d/local, sorry for mistake
Meh. Here is the 64Bit .config file for 2.6.37 kernel (for ck-sources, you can use with gentoo-sources too). Don't forget to configure. E.g. I'm not using usb-based wireless cards, nor printer, so didn't enable it.
Most problematic hardware is RaLink RT3090 Wireless, which still has a staging driver. I'm using this as module (rt2870sta), don't forget the firmware, if it goes crazy about connecting just reload the module.
Only non-working thing is Fn-F5 and F6 (setting screen brightness with keyboard), however i'm good with software, you can use battery applets (e.g. in kde or gnome).

I saw some retards (maybe there's some organisations behind these ideas, i dunno) says "copying is not theft! i don't steal the software, i'm just copying.." and "if i steal an orange¹, the original one disappears, but if I copy it, there's no problem".
NO! moron, it's pure theft.
People are not selling oranges in software world. While the software is running, a person or corp. is having a benefit from it. It's not important if you steal the original one or not (funny, how could you "steal" the original one actually if it's a software?). Main idea is, you're using some codes which someone f*cked their days (even years) for it. Also they're not selling "the code", they're allowing you to "use" that code (if you ever read the EULA's or licences, whatever).
The dramatic part, for me, some of this retards are supporting free software. They don't even know what "freedom" is. Freedom includes your right to sell your own, "i gave everything to write this shit"-code. By the way, I hate licences (but I'm using softwares which I've right to use).
¹ For some kind of retards, who says "it's not theft, it's plagiarism", i can say "thesis" instead of orange. Would it be good?
