    Abuse, probably not (if a thing is required on one system and must
    not be on another, it has to be configurable). If the printk is
    a good idea... IMHO hardly, at best. We don't warn about trying to
    write to /vmlinuz after all.

    ulimit/pam_limits should fix the (IMHO nonexistent) problem nicely.
    One has to plug all the holes, though (e.g. $HOME/.forward).
