I too share some concerns about the inclusion of domain quotas in the
current development vpopmail

In hindsight I believe it would have been better to sign off on a stable
vpopmail, and then the new domain quota stuff could have been added to the
next development series.

I wonder if it would be hard to remove or not...? Was the domain quota
additions limited to just a few functions, or was it pretty much substantial
changes to much of vpopmail code?
