Quota per directory



Coming from a systems administration background, I was very surprised to find out that fedora (well Linux actually) doesn't have a per directory quota. It is very common and needed IMHO to have a quota per directory, as the directory basically represents a project some people are working on. One would want to make sure that a certain project would not consume all disk space. Only XFS seemed to have per "project" quota (I even think the Linux implementation doesn't have that!)

Is there any technical reason why ext3 does not offer such functionality, or has it just not been done? Is anyone aware of any patches to add such functionality?
