There are contradictory recommendations for ramdisk size here. The
examples say 700 MB, but the prose below them (fortunately within the
context of this diff) says 570 MB.

So, I would normally just change the 570 to 700 without asking. But
as it happens, I would like to start using a ramdisk myself, and am
wondering why it has to be 700 MB. I mean, I don't even have that
much RAM total! Should we make a way to run the tests in a
low-disk-usage mode, for example, automatically removing each test
subdir after we're done with it? This wouldn't be the default, but it
could be useful for people who want to run in a ramdisk.

Thoughts?
