With Windows domain controllers with when the profile size is too big 
(and there are limits appled), when the user logs out, he/she gets a 
warning, and a list of files, sorted from the biggest, to the smallest.

To get an idea how it looks like, here's a screenshot:


Is it possible to do something like that with a Samba domain controller?

With quota enabled on a Samba server, user just gets a small error 
window, and has to scroll down and read a lot of text to understand what 
happened (and in the end he/she will probably not notice/understand that 
the profile wasn't uploaded back to the server, which means some data 
may be lost).
