My suggestion would be this:
1.  Put it in /etc
2.  Remove any special hackery to set limits or paths differently elsewhere,
such as /root/.profile, etcetera.

That way, people who are curious about these settings can find them in the
One Canonical Place, and it'll be easier to keep track.

It would reduce long-term maintenance hassles!
