Here's yet another idea which will touch the same code region:
pg_ctlcluster should support PAM, or more specifically pam_limits.so,
so people can set proper limits in /etc/security/limits.conf.

This is probably the easiest to achieve if we simply use su(1) instead
of doing the PID change etc in pure perl.
