Subject: Has anyone found a way to implement quotas with MFS?

I want to mount memory filesystems on /tmp and /var/tmp and I want to slap
quotas on them to keep the users from blowing things up.

I thought I could simply edit rc to copy quota.user from a secure place on
disk to /tmp.  But quotacheck seems to want an ffs...  it ignores the
fstab entry with the mfs.

I know this is sort of a cheesy idea, but I'm a little peeved that it
doesn't work.  Has anyone come up with an elegant (or at least a
working) way to have quotas on an mfs?
