There's nothing special about "boot", it's just the VCL name given to
the one loaded at launch time using the -f or -b option.

For the amount of VCLs to keep loaded, I'd say enough to feel
confident about rollbacks. If it takes you 30m to link a problem to a
VCL change, then keep 1h worth of reloads for example. Again, your
policy, your rules :)
