I think something based on one of the process limits would be good.
Maybe combined with stashing it in a variable that can be modified.
Maybe even putting that variable in a module so it's not visible in a
barebones shell.

datasize, stacksize, and addressspace are all candidates for how to
figure out the limit.  (Do we ever allocate arrays for zsh parameter
expansion on the stack?)
