[development] Controlling User Disk Usage

I'm working on something similar for a client.  They want uploads per-user to 
tie into their existing user quotas on the server.  My tentative idea after 
talking with dopry was to have all files save to 
$files_dir/$user->name/blah/blah, and then auto-create symlinks from each 
user's files dir to a directory in their home dir on the system.  
Unfortunately different modules store their file paths differently, so I'm 
getting that working only while the uploading user is still logged in.  For 
anyone else, images are broken. :-)

Is this something we could share ideas on?

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
