/etc/security/limits.conf is simply one vehicle (specifically, the one
used by PAM) for getting a uid-0 process (hence a process w/
CAP_SYS_RESOURCE) like login or su to call setrlimit() before running
some user-supplied code. Rainbow can accomplish this directly.
(I am interested in arguments as to whether Rainbow should be made to
interact with PAM and the 'login'/'session'/'terminal' concept cluster,
but I haven't yet gotten around to detailed investigation.)
