Right, but a client is a lot more likely to have access to
/home/<username>/ than they are to also be able to look at /, and

So if they can do a lookup on /home/<username>/ they get their quota,
but if they have to look it up from the root it's lost even though the
client has permission to see all the things that contain their quota
state... :/
