Maximum number of apps. on IIS?

Is there a maximum (reasonable) number of applications that can/should be
hosted on a single IIS? I am CONSIDERING deploying hundreds (thousands?) of
similar apps on a server. Obviously, the workload of each app would be quite
light. If I did this, would it:

a) work?
b) have significantly worse performance than if the same total workload was
targeted at a single app.? (Let's assume cacheing isn't used in either
scenario).

(trust me, I will only do it this way if I really have to, but would like
information on the above for my consideration).

Thanks,

Paul.

I can't speak from personal experience, but this scenario would require
testing both ways and take some metrics of the server processor usage and
memory usage (disk hits, etc). Optimization is not a Server Administrator
checklist. It is an ambiguous art. Good luck!

Best regards,
