*swapPath* is ok for me. It is also consistent with *walPath* and 

Regarding persistencePath/storagePath, I don't like the idea when path 
for WAL is implicitly changed, especially when we have separate option 
for it.
WAL and storage files are already located under same $IGNITE_HOME root. 
 From user perspective, there's no need to change root for all 
persistence-related directories as long as $IGNITE_HOME points to the 
correct disk.
 From developer perspective, this change breaks backwards compatibility. 
Maintaining backwards compatibility in fail-safe way (checking both 
old-style and new-style paths) is complex and hard to maintain in the

My vote is for *storagePath* and keeping behavior as is.
