I also use maildrop + dovecot. My quotas are stored in a mysql DB in
couriers expected format: 50000000S (note the S on the end for storage).
It makes for a very ugly userdb query trying to get that formatted to
dovecot style of "maildir:storage=48828:ignore=Trash"

How much would it take to allow dovecot's quota plugin to alternately
accept "maildir:50000000S:ignore=Trash"?
