[php-maint] Bug#599861: /etc/php5/cli/php.ini not updated to show switch to ulimit for memory_limit

Package: php5-cli
Version: 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny9

PHP5 cli has been changed to depend on ulimit for setting the maximum 
amount of memory that can be consumed by a script.  The stock 
/etc/php5/cli/php.ini still contains the memory_limit setting with no 
indication that it is no longer being used.  A comment should be added 
to indicate this change and, perhaps, to provide some usage instructions 
for ulimit as users may not find it in the bash man page.
