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.)
