OK, let's just agree that we disagree. I don't think that any further 
dicussion makes sense.

No, I didn't say that. What I said is that it doesn't *support* it. 
Obviously you can have authorable quota on a system that supports NFS. 
You just can't use NFS (at least not this part of the protocol; maybe 
there's something else) to *do* it.
