We should have one testcase for one thing to test - by that defintion
this bug should really stay a test case on it's own. Some more comments

We can use numeric ids for projects directly, and the -p object to
various xfs_quota subcommands also allows refering to a path instead
of a project name, that way we don't have to rewrite the config files

This should use _scratch_mkfs _scratch_mount and so on instead of
