Is this the time to pause and look at the wider picture?

There is a long-standing (and "Status=Active") item in the TODO list:
   Rewriting Samba's current filesystem quota support as a VFS module

Might this be a better solution?  If not, then should the item in the TODO
list be dropped?

(Having been actively involved in Samba quota support in the past, writing
Solaris/VxFS and using Solaris/NFS, I'd be happy to be involved in such a
subproject, but would not be able to lead it.)
