Well, you're not entirely correct... upload module allows you to disable
a limit by setting it to 0. Thus, you could either want per-role
settings, or global settings. Or use the global setting for everyone,
except have one role have a stricter limit.

So we need to decide whether these are valid use cases, or just
unnecessary complexity.

Currently the upload module checks two max file sizes. First it checks a
global option; if its too big it quits. Then it checks another max file
size (or even sizes) related to the roles which a user is in.

We can remove the global option since the individual roles are checked.

Oh and this includes a refactoring which changes one undocumented
function that did two things into two documented functions that do one
thing each. Forgot about that part.
