I have no strong feeling about it. If we drop it, we'll also drop
backward compat support for quotactl ...

when quota1.[ch] is dropped, quota2.[ch] can easily be merged back in
quota.[ch]. I don't see a strong need to mess with file names right now.

There is also the question about options QUOTA vs QUOTA2. They can be renamed
to QUOTA1 (or OQUOTA) and QUOTA respectively, that's not a problem.
