It seems that there are two common definitions for the terms "Limit
Superior" and "Limit Inferior": one pertains to sequences and the
other to sets.

I am curious if the two defns are in any way related. I can't seem to
find such a connection, but perhaps there is some clever way to cast
the LimSup for a sequence in terms of sets that I'm somehow missing.
