---------------------------------------------------------------

For the diskspace quota, is it worth putting the numbers into MB, GB, etc for human consumption?
On a large cluster with a large quota the formatted number would probably be more easily groked.

> We seem to return one generic message when either a namespace or diskspace quota is exceeded.
 We should be clearer.   The error should state which quota is exceeded and only report statistics
on the exceeded quota.
> Further namespace quota is probably not clear to most users.  We should probably have
explanatory text such as: "you have exceeded the maximum allowed number of files".  Maybe
we should even rename the quota to number of files quota?
> Finally, the error below would be clearer if it read:
>   Quota exceeded for directory '/user/ciyaliao'.
> By not using the word "directory" it is not clear in this case if the issue is with a
user or a directory.
