Disk Layout/Partitioning Practices

When installing everything and allowing for future updates and packages I am using the following disk layout:
Mount Point Size
swap 2x physical RAM, e.g., 1GB
/home TBD, e.g., 1GB per user
/opt TBD/catchall [3rd party servers will be installed here]
I want to have enough space on required partitions but not waste space on infrequently modified filesystems where add-on packages will probably not go.
I'd like to get an idea what other folks are doing in terms of disk layouts. What are the best practices?
