(In reply to Conrad Meyer from comment #3)
services started by non privileged users will inherit the limits
of those users, which at least in my understanding is working as intended.
An alternative approach would be to have a generic _limit_enable variable
per service, in the same spirit as services such as apache used to have
before there was central support for service limits. My approach was the
one with the least amount of needed changes and potential impact to existing
setups (considering that there was no central limits support previously).
