I haven't tested that it actually works, but it appears to be referenced
in FileContainer.createInfoFromProp():

	PreAllocSize = 
		PropertyUtil.getServiceInt(tc, createArgs,
				DEFAULT_PRE_ALLOC_SIZE /* default */);

If it turns out that setting the property works, we should probably try
to get it into the documentation, as it looks like it could be useful.
