Taking this a bit (actually, a lot) further... consider a
limit as just another property.  Say, for instance,
search-candidate-limit.  We could administrate this with
something like.

        set search-candidate-limit on connection to 1000
        set search-candidate-limit on authentication
                        by dn=xxxx to unlimited
                        by users to 2000
                        (implicit by * to current)
        set search-candidate-limit
                on operation=search control=pagedresults
                        by users to 4000
                        by anonymous to 0
                        (implicit by * to current)

Now, the language gets interesting when you allow condition
on clauses in the set language...

        set search-candidate-limit on operation-processing
                        by users to 4000
                        by anonymous to 0
                        (implicit by * to current)

and really interesting when you start allow admin defined
        define boolean superuser on authentication
                by dn=xxxx to TRUE

and allow that in set statements:
        set search-candidate-limit on operation-processing
                        by * to unlimited
