See the conversations between Andrew and I over the first two version of this
changeset :). Initially I was opposed to adding syscalls at all, but Andrew
thought that this interface lent itself naturally to syscalls (given that
setrlimit and getrlimit are already syscalls). Since the core work here is
applicable to both syscalls and the proc interface, I figured it didn't hurt to
do both.
