Need a way to limit memory used by a subprocess
-----------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-371
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-371
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: JavaScript View Server
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Damien Katz
            Assignee: Damien Katz
            Priority: Minor


We need a way to limit the total memory used by sub processes, such as a view process, so
they can not use up all the available memory due to coding error or malicious attack. We can
probably do this by setting ulimit in the couchspawnkillable script.
