I got a number of answers, thanks for all the help. The solution was best
stated by Casper Dik:
Casper> You need to make all the fields for a specific user zero for all
Casper> filesystems with quota.
Casper> The easiest way to do is to invoke "edquota" with as environment
Casper> variable "EDITOR" pointing to a script that does this
Casper> E.g., a script like:
Casper> perl -p -i -e 's/ = [0-9]*/ = 0/g' "$@"
Casper> invoke edquota as (script is called quotazero):
Casper> env EDITOR=/path/to/quotazero edquota user .....
Thanks to everyone else who gave me this solution.
