While 256M of text seems big, I find it really surprising to have a compiled limit that low. For me, the biggest installed program is mongod at 32M, in terms of text as reported by size(1). So I would support bumpming that to 512M for sure, maybe 1G. It also seems like this belongs in ulimit, as something a sysadmin would reasonably want to set along with data size limits.
