I personally don't require it. It also seems to me with disk space
costing what it does, and compression being readily available (via
plugins, ZFS, or what have you) it shouldn't really be an issue.
Are there any applications that display the actual quota amount that do
NOT round to the megabyte? It seems to me that most show percentage
used, and round to the megabyte if they do display the actual number -
maybe that's where the problem will lie.. Applications that convert the
actual quota from bytes to megabytes will break.

Some of you may be aware I'm working on changes and additions to the quota
system in vpopmail.
Part of the aim of the updated system is to provide future-proofing against the
having now, where quota sizes and usage counts are overflowing in various
in vpopmail, or in applications utilizing vpopmail.
My question is this; would anyone ever require a quota below a megabyte, or,
would any application
ever really need to know about specific usage counts below a megabyte?
When calculating usage, I'm thinking about making the smallest measure of unit
a megabyte storing
the result in a 64bit unsigned integer. The 64bit value is almost a
requirement, but making the smallest
unit of measure a megabyte, should future-proof for quite a bit longer.
