The problem is that there is no standard way to do this.  Right
now, systems that use PAM or BSD authentication do get the resource
limits set to the target user.  AIX, however, appears to use its
own mechanism (via getuserattr).

I don't have access to any AIX machines myself so I don't have a
good way to implement this.  If someone were to grant me access, I
should be able to make resouce limit setting work on AIX without
too much trouble.
