I just remembered, there's another reasons why requota reads the quota
file directly: I didn't implement the getall command for ffs-quota1.
It has nothing to do with xml or filesystem-independant code :)
it's just I didn't know (and still don't know) how to properly read
a whole file, especially when it's sparce, from the kernel.
I could try a dqget for the 2^21-1 ids, but there's probably a better
way to do that.
I guess I could find the hupper bound from the quota vnode's size.
Maybe that would be enough ...
