The problem with custodian-limit-memory is that it doesn't actually

I'd like a command line switch that puts a hard limit on heap size ...
similar to the server JVM. Using ULIMIT on Linux you can restrict
process data size, but Windows offers no simple way to do that. It can
be done clumsily on Windows using containers or with "job objects", but
few people have containers set up on their Windows boxes and the few job
objects tools I am aware of work only on already running processes ...
there's no simple way to start a process that is restricted from the
