Setting it to zero (unlimited) is an excellent idea IFF you
have confidence that there are no resource leaks.  Since we're
talking performance here, set it to zero in a particular platform,
start the server, measure the resource consumption, pump a few
requests through it, measure again, and then pump 1*10E6 requests
through it and measure again.  If the last two measurements are
essentially equal, I'd say you're safe in sticking with the
unlimited value.

3P libraries and modules are just as villainous as system ones
when it comes to having insidious leaks.
