At the moment the contents has a fixed size.

In the fairly near future it will be changed to have a much smaller
initial size but expanding the files as necessary.  In the worst case it
would just fill the available filesystem space, so the answer seems to
be give your ramfs an adequate but limited size.

In normal operation (ie, without using the MONO_SHARED_DIR environment
variable) there is one .wapi directory per user, not per application.
