I'm not quite sure what you mean by vQadmin-toaster.  We use vQadmin
in production on thousands of systems with no issues.

We're by no means dropping vQadmin, we just haven't had any significant
updates to provide in recent months.

I hope to have it in the next few months :)

5.5 with the MySQL backend is ready to be tested.  I don't expect any major
changes in the module API, or in the MySQL module.

Quotas should be working in 5.4.28, and in 5.5.  There's some additional
work to be done, of course, but the core is there and should be working.
The main difference between 5.5 and 5.4.28, is that 5.4.28 leaves the
original semi-broken quota code in place as a fall-back, if the vusage
daemon isn't running.

As of now, 5.5 requires the vusage daemon to report disk usage.  It's a matter
of tuning the daemon to be as efficient as possible, so it continues to be
a disk I/O saver, even on larger systems.

Glad to hear it.  Let me know if you come across any issues (or successes :)
