I've always spelt it with an "a". But my friend insists on spelling it with an "o". Is this an acceptable variant?

Both the NOAD and the OED report that swop is a variant spelling of swap; the NOAD reports it is chiefly British.
I know that "swop" is a variant, having seen it in manuals and help discussions like this, but I've never seen it used in real life (i.e., in US usage). Looks very UK-ish.
