Just use the other format of edquota first:

edquota [-u] [-f filesystem] [-h block#/inode#] [-s block#/inode#]
             username ...

edquota -h 200000 -s 180000 felix

Then you can do 'edquota felix' and see the standard format - which is
useful if you're doing query->change, but if you're just doing 'set',
the command line options are more convienient.
