Well spotted!

I am curious about why this feature was added. The man page says:

	If it is set to disable, the search is not even performed; this
	can be used to disallow searches for  a specific  set of users.

Disallowing searches seems more like an ACL job than a limit job
to me, so I did not mention this when writing up the Limits features
for the Admin Guide.

Does anyone actually use unchecked=disabled and if so, why?
