Besides the -e switch to edquota as has already been mentioned, I used to make extensive use of the -p switch to use a prototype.
For example, you could create a "fake" user (or group) named "q-typical", assign that user the quotas for a typical user, and then use edquota -p q-typical newuser to assign those quotas to the new user. You could maintain several prototypes for different classes of users or groups.
