As someone has already pointed out, the standard quota system might fit
your needs, and if not, you are probably looking at a high overhead on
your server -- especially if the logic is a 'script' (e.g. bash?).

If you really want to do it, my suggestion is that you consider writing
yourself a VFS plugin -- maybe the audit plugin would be a good starting
