    actually, a task can use 99,9% CPU without a malicious user sitting behind.
    as an example, in a.out systems, where mapping to addr 0 is valid,
    a strlen(NULL) or strcpy(NULL ...) can make a task use 99,9% CPU.
    and since I am not watching the system 24 hours a day to terminate such
    tasks (which may run as demons), CPU% limitation would help a bit....
