I see there's been alot of traffic on this today.  I've
been out (working) most of the day and haven't been able to
keep up.  It should be easy to put together a utility to convert
the limits, not an issue.

As for several of the other comments, I'd like to take tonight to
think about several of the suggestions and post one myself.  I've
been running with the current patched API since vpopmail 4.9.6 and
its been working well.  I also have a patched qmailadmin-1.0.4
with quotas (I forgot who wrote the quota patch), and a patched
version of vdelivermail.  Both of these use a recursive stat()
to determine usage & quota since it was before the Maildir++ quotas
were in there, so I always had *regular* disk usage quotas enforced
which I believe may differ from the Maildir++ quotas.

My intent was to get the API into the library before updating the
programs/utilities to actually use the API.  I've been sitting on
this for about 10 months now (with a working system), and now finally
got it into the distribution.  Now it seems (from all the traffic on
it today) that nobody can wait for it...  I think it would be best to
get the base correct and sound before actually using it in the utilities
and programs.  I have some pros/cons (and I'd like to extend the list
and send it out to everyone) about the current implementation and want
to get some feedback before moving on it.  (Its waited 10 months already,
another day or two won't hurt).  I'll compile and post some questions 
in a bit to see what people really want/need and make sure this gets
done properly.
