I see where you are coming from, but stepping back the issue is that
there is some system-wide default limit that seems appopriate for some
things, but then you are saying it's not right for this process.  So
either it's wrong to start with, or the notion that all processes should
have similar limits is wrong.  If different processes should have
different limits, then it would be nice to have some general scheme to
set them.
