The quota-status protocol is just the ordinary Postfix policy delegation
protocol, documented in Postfix's SMTPD_POLICY_README. I would have
thought that if you give 'service quota-status' an inet_listener you
could have the Postfix policy check the quota on several machines over
the network, though of course the policy protocol has absolutely no
security so you may not want to do that.
