Sorry, should have been

'-N+[specify limit by number]:limit number::limit value'

Otherwise you'd get "Completing file size (blocks)" when
pressing Tab after "ulimit -N 15 ".

Now I need to figure out how to amend a commit that is not the

By the way, should I cache that list of options retrieved from
the output of "ulimit -a"? After all, it's not going to change
from one run to the next. But then again, a $(ulimit -a) command
substitution is going to be fast and caching uses up memory. Do
you have recommendations as to when to cache and when not to?
