This in itself wouldn't normally be
a problem, but because the cosign and cosign service cookies (for the
daemon) are stored in one directory; this will fill up very quickly.

It would be a fairly trivial change to make the cosign cookies be stored in some set of directories instead of one directory entirely -- say, take the first one or two letters of the cookie to be the first and second directory under ../daemon. Certainly a lot easier than either switching to shm (and all the proper locking that entails) or a database. No matter what Oracle says, databases are still substantially slower than filesystems.
