Description

It should be possible to write a PAM module that checks if a user is over quota, and if so, fails with a useful error message.

If it is possible, we should do it.

Specifically, users are occasionally unable to login if they're over quota.

geofft notes that we could display a message and pause, c.f. pam_motd.

I've done this in debathena-xsession by adding a message early in the login sequence warning users that they're over quota and that the login session will fail. See also #353.
