The problem with using RLIMIT is that the testsuite could be executing several tests in parallel using independent threads, for instance. You don't want to influence unrelated tests.

Overiding private methods is ugly, but if the code evolves the test would break, and the programmer just have to update it. I think that "sometimes" we have to be "practical". There are plenty of examples of this in the testsuite, using implementation details, etc.
