The lazy administrator's tool to set user quota


      Sets the disk quota for individual users on Mitel's SME servers
      (5.x/6.x/7.x/8.x).  This tool is functionally equivalent to the 'Quota manage-
      ment' option in the server-manager, but can be run from the command
      line or called from an other script.  It allows you, for example, to
      set the disk quota for a large number of accounts in a batch process or
      on a remote machine via an ssh console.
      See /usr/doc/lazy-admin-tools/example.quota for the format of the input
