It would be nice if it were possible to set user-limits as provision until a proper resource accounting framework is implemented.

The goal is to make the Hurd stable enough for the everyday use of more people - and for that a faulty program should not be able to crash the whole system.

This wish is a followup on the email by Olaf about system stability: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2009-06/msg00135.html
