    No, I there's another problem of people setting it as high as they
    possibly can ("hey, I might put 3G of ram in here someday...") without
    realizing that there are tradeoffs and they probably want the default.
    I think the question should be phrased as "Limit userspace memory to..."
    instead of "Maximum physical memory..." for this reason.
