I'm going to offer this in a different form for the next bash version.  The
shell variable CHILD_MAX will control the number of exit statuses to
remember, with two constraints: the shell will not allow users to decrease
that below the Posix minimum value, and there will be a maximum value that
can't be exceeded.
