I wrote a filesystem quota plugin for use with dovecot-0.99.x some  
time ago.
It's been tested with both Solaris and FreeBSD, and is currently used  
on a production Solaris server with 20k users for exactly the purpose  
you describe - SquirrelMail quota display.
If anyone's interested in looking at the code with an eye to  
extending OS support or accelerating conversion to the 1.0-alpha  
codebase, let me know and I'll get around to making it available  
On the other hand, Timo made some noises about committing something  
similar to CVS, so it may be worth waiting.
