Quota problem

The way the quota package installs itself right now is not the best option,
since it checks quota in the foreground on a fresh installation. Now this
could be solved by moving quotacheck into the background. This surely would
solve the installation problem, but how about the check during boot time?
Some systems will need an hour or so to just check quota, but moving this
into the background as well may lead to incorrect data, since changes to the
filesystem during a quotacheck may prove incorrect results.

One idea was to only check quota if fsck returns an error, but that would
mean that the we only get correct numbers after an incorrect umount. Besides
this would also mean that the call to quotacheck would have to be moved to
sysvinit's scripts. 

I'm simply not sure what to do. Any ideas?
