FreeBSD 4.10 and Apache 2.0.5x: setting limits

You can set the limits (ulimit) for Apache 2 through a variable
(apache2limits_args enabled by apache2limits_enable) in rc.conf. If enabled,
it uses, by default, the limits for login-class daemon as found in

I take it these settings are quite general, and may not be sufficient (to
restrictive or not). So I was wondering what kind of limits other users are
using. And how those settings scale or depend on various configurations?
Googling, or Apache: Definitive Reference / Apache Cookbook do not seem to
provide any clues here :-(
Kind Regards,
