In the old days we used to install root on slice 0, then swap on slice 1, but now common practise is to install swap on the first, slice 0, then root on slice 1.

Not in the olden days, majority of us are using that standard even now

Many of the systems I work on are still 0-root 1-swap. Perfectly cool way still.
