as you'll have to modify every daemon/tool (eg: sshd w/o the UseLogin
option) and there's still an issue wrt processes started at boot time,
is this not best hidden within init and/or {v}fork?

i've also noticed that whatever governs the maxproc limit _appears_
to consider the number of current processes on the system, not the
number of processes owned by the user.  i have not watched closely
enough be certain that is the case.  anyone else?
