Comment(by james):

 The only situation not catered for that I can see is wanting to set a more
 proscriptive set of limits for filters than for `omindex`. Of course,
 people can do this anyway by wrapping (or auto-wrapping in a `ccache`
 style) the programs invoked as filters.

 So I'd be moderately in favour of:

  * removing the filter limit entirely
  * closing this ticket

 and certainly in favour of:

  * not making filter limits configurable
  * closing this ticket

 Either way, configurability doesn't belong inside `omindex`; use the
 operating system controls to do this sort of thing.
