    Perhaps the ability to have an (almost) infinite number of supplementary
    groups assigned to a user. Yes, I know NFS doesn't support this, but at
    least libc & the kernel could.

    I'd say a perusal of /usr/include/limits.h, and #include'd files, would
    aid in finding limits that could use to be raised.
