Sorry, I wasn't clear. All I meant was that its better not to try to
start implementing a limits scheme based on the idea that the limits
apply to *some* kind of user ID (luid, euid, etc.), since this is
restrictive. Better to start with a mechanism that makes no reference
to a "user" (thus allowing limits to be placed even on entirely kernel
side tasks), and then layer the user stuff on top. IMHO, anyway.
