ulimit.1posix confusing

Bug Description

Binary package hint: manpages-posix

'man ulimit' describes the POSIX requirements for 'ulimit'. However, the actual ulimit command is provided by the shell (for example bash), and has much more functionality.

That's a bit confusing. Perhaps ulimit.1posix should point this out, and refer readers to their shell's manpage (for example 'man bash') for more details?
