I have attached a much more complete patch. Preliminary tests seem to indicate that it is working fine. I have used an 'int' to calculate the limit_file, since cmd_number_inf is not able to handle 'wgint' on x86_64 GNU/Linux systems.


PS: the build problems went away when I tried on a different system.

I have attached an initial patch against the current Mercurial tree to just let you know the direction I intend to follow. It is completely untested because it looks like currently the code in Mercurial does not build.
