hum, not so sure in this case.  I'd just settle on a sensible maximum
value, like 1024.  we can't malloc RLIMIT_DATA either because we've
already allocated memory for other things, or am I mixing things?

These are files that are displayed in the gotwebd UI, it doesn't make
sense to have a lot of content.  They should be just a few lines.
Furthermore, description and cloneurl are just informative and can be
safely truncated.

just to provide a datapoint, this is what I currently have:

	antartica$ find /var/www/got/public/ \
		-name description -o -name cloneurl \
		-exec stat -f %z {} + | sort -rh | head
	140
	137
	134
	128
	125
	116
	113
	113
	113
	113

these are bytes...
