Seeing the way quotas work in cyrus (quotaroots), I was expecting
something like this: instead of the now mandatory
username -> .../mail/<firstletter>/user/username mapping, there could
be a way to specify alternate mapping:
username1 -> .../mail/<groupfirstletter>/group/groupname/username1
username2 -> .../mail/<groupfirstletter>/group/groupname/username2

This way one could specify a quota at groupname, only the quota editor
would be affected, everything else is transparent.
