Well, what I was thinking would be useful would be to add:

	daemon:path=/bin /usr/bin /sbin /usr/sbin:...

and put root into class daemon, so we could have a concrete illustration of
what's going on there.

Although we could just omit the datasize limits, I would sort of like to have
the 'default' class actually contain the correct limits, so that people see
the easy place to edit this (as opposed to, say, thinking they have to rebuild
the kernel to change the default datasize limit).
