What use is an external command /usr/bin/ulimit? (Yes, I see one on my
Mac from $WORK: it contains builtin `echo ${0##*/} | tr \[:upper:]
\[:lower:]` ${1+"$@"})

Because ulimit is supposed to change the limits for the current process,
running it in a separate process (which happens for non-builtin shell
commands) has no effect at all on the current proces...
It's just like an external /bin/cd command...

So I wonder why that file even exists.
