i don't think this should be a discussion about changing the dists!!!
moving to another distribution should be the last thing to do!
and for better reasons then only a package that is newer or "better"
or "easier" to handle.
this is nonsense!
btw, the libpam-modules package w/ rlimits is also in DeMuDi
(from "http://demudi.agnula.org/images/1.2.1/README.PACKAGES":
libpam-modules 0.76-22)
and debian sarge and the current ubuntu (both also version 0.76-22).
