you might install the context kernel patch. It introduces several
possibilities to limit even root. This is mainly used to run several
seperated virtual servers on one physical machine. Then you need to
install the package vserver (it isn't in stable yet). Then you can use
chbind to bind an application and all child processes to one ip. See man
chbind for more details.
