You will basically use login.conf to put user in user classes (set via
chpass $USER) and then restrict the number of simultaneous processes as
the simple way to do it. You can also limit the total CPU time a user is
allowed to handle.

But then you'd also have to look for processes that are allowed to run
as root...
