Since I could issue an LDAP query for
(&(uidNumber=%uid)(gidNumber=%gid)) for homeDirectory to retrieve all
home directory paths, and associated mailDirSize files, I wonder if I
could extend dovecot to allow us to handle shared quota like the
fs-quota used to work.
Using symlinks between accounts would very quickly deteriorate.
