But that's still not what he's looking for, I think. The limit on
user processes is actually fixed at 80 unless you redefine MAXUPRC.
The default value of 80 is taken from CHILD_MAX.
You could recompile with 'options MAXUPRC=1000', as far as I
know, but that does leave you open to runaway programs and who
knows what else... :-)
