From the wapl(4) man page:
| WAPBL currently maintains its journal in one of two locations:
| - After the file system
| The journal is placed in the same partition as the file system,
| but between the file system and the end of the partition.
| - Within the file system
| The journal is allocated as a special contiguous file within the
| file system. The journal file is not visible via normal file
| system access.
Normally a filesystem fills the partition, so the only choice left
is "Within a file system" and for this you need enough _contigous_
free space, which might be impossible if the filesystem is nearly full
or heavily fragmented.
