I don't know... but if not, there are plenty of other fses.

That's a good question. My first instinct is that like the other stuff
zfs does that it does in its own semantically-incompatible way, it
would require its own tools. But I guess the quota system could be
made to report the limits if the sub-filesystems are specifically
assigned to users somehow. Or something like that...
