I'm so surprised :)

Thanks Gisle. I guess we should try if it works, if not, just hope that 
users will have their limit high enough. In fact we already use ulimit 
under Apache-Test to prepare the filesystem to drop core files.

In which case BSD::Resource should be buildable too. We can't just add it 
to mod_perl-core. But for A-T each specific test suite that would be nice.
