If you want it, you'll have to implement it yourself, i.e. you have to
modify cygwin sources to support such feature. I suppose it might be
tricky, so i suspect nobody can point you a file which can be easily
changed to add such functionality.
I should warn you, however, that if your goal is to prevent malicious
user from eating up system resources, then your restriction won't
help. User can always start more processes using native syscalls
(CreateProcess()), which cygwin cannot control.
