Perhaps quota calculations could be changed to use 64 bit integers?
The current algorithm should continue to work.

It would be nice if the max useful quota were to be documented. Max
quota = 4,194,303 QU for a 32 bit implementation or 18,014,398,509,481,983 QU
for 64 bits.  Attempts to set a quota larger than the max quota should
result in an error rather than setting some unexpected value.
