I'd actually flip the default instead: make --with-quotas
on by default, and individuals could turn it off if their
I like having a per-share option, but would suggest avoiding
the term "dfree", as this is currently used as part of a
workaround for dfree program bugs.
In principle, dfree-the-command should never be used for
computing whether or not someone's going to run out of space:
it's way too expensive. I'd expect "dfree command" to be set
only on systems which have broken quotas **and** a broken dfree.
