not as far as I know. The problem is that we don't have anyone on the
team who uses quotas.

excellent. The main problems with the old code were:

- it wasn't very portable 
- it didn't use root privileges carefully enough (potential security
  hole if smbd is left as euid root after quota check)
- it wasn't maintained

yes, I left it there in the hope that someone who uses quotas would
fix it up!
