Yes, I kind of hated that file from the beginning and hoped never to see
it. But I guess I could create it when new mailboxes are created, but
that's all I'm going to do with it.

Like someone else already replied, quota roots are a different thing.
Dovecot v1.0 supports only one quota root, the CVS HEAD supports
multiple (although the quota backends don't really). Typically they
could be eg. "user quota" and "domain quota".
