I'd really like to do some sort of QA for this. Given that xfs_quota
already has an (uncodumented) -t flag to use a replacement for
/proc/mounts and /etc/mtab this seems fairly easy to do.
If you're motivated for even more cleanups it would be good if all
xfs_quota options are actully documented, and making sure the
/proc/mounts, /etc/mtab and co handling in xfsprogs doesn't differ
for different tools. Currently libxcmd, libxfs and xfs_fsr all
have their own variants.
