One thing I considered doing was using 2.2's mountable databases for
something like this.  Give each user their own database (possibly
without undo information) and use a cron job to check file sizes.  If
you have root on the box, you could create users id's for each user and
use quota on the filesystem to handle quota checking for you.

Of course, this wouldn't be horribly practical for a *lot* of users.
