A modification in the quota code would be great. I'm using the UID for
my users - not their email addresses, which is stored nowhere only in
the quota table.

Mh, don't know how hard it would be modify the code that way, that it
would accept a dict configuration like:

	map {
	  pattern = priv/quota/storage
	  table = quota
	  username_field = uid
	  username_var = %{uid}
	  value_field = bytes
