That's the best I could come up with. I just checked and I can confirm
/etc/security/limits.conf is used at least on:
- Ubuntu
- Debian
- CentOS
- ScientificSL

Seems to be pretty standard, and I think all PAM-based distros have it. But
even if it won't work on your system, it provides a good starting point to
google for a solution. Suggestions are welcome of course.
