Does setting the RSS rlimit do anything?  A quick grep through the 1.6
sources and testing seems to imply that it doesn't.  It would be nice to
be able to simulate paging without actually generating a system wide low
memory condition.  Also, I think it would be good for CVS servers since
the CVS heap will grow very large temporarily on certain conditions
involving large ,v commits and checkouts of large directories from slow
clients (in which case CVS can grow to the sum of the size of all ,v files
in one directory).
