Well, then I will prepare (have in fact done so, except init script,
and format "3.0 (quilt)") a separate package named `freebsd-quota'
built from manually extracted source out of freebsd-8.1-release.
I will file an ITP by the end of this European day, beginning night,
so issue a protest timely enough if you have a better alternative.

I was more intending at any preferred grouping of smaller patches
across the directory boundaries that were originally mentioned.
Now that I go for a separate package, I will follow my own head
in patch production.
