That's not clear. The true limit of an instance is obviously highly
dependent on the workload of the app; some could handle thousands, and
some struggle with 10. 10 seems to be near a reasonable sweet spot
that is safe for almost all apps, but also reasonably effective for
Feel free to file a feature request on the issue tracker to make that
configurable. I doubt we will change away from 10 as a default.

I could believe that. Try doing some work in the app handler and the
balance might change.

The general mechanism is to protect all of them, but it is conceivable
that we could some day make it tunable.
