If you read the response on that bugzilla, it says Anaconda isn't
configuring a system to be be able to hibernate.  That does not equate
to not needing to set up adequate space to be able to hibernate.

If hibernating is going to be a memory dump to hard drive, then the hard
drive space (it's using the swap file/partition) *needs* to be big
enough.  Doing something that *might* work, doesn't fit the definition
of doing what *needs* to be done, to make it work.

Compression isn't always possible.  Attempting to rely on something that
might work is pretty much guaranteed to bite you on the bum at the time
you needed it to work.

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
