ok, I got it now. Indeed, it would be a life-filling task to
do this with LVM...
I'm not that firm with quota, but isn't it true, that quota uses only
the UIDs ?
So, as the UID in a vserver are the same UIDs in the main-server, one
could use quotas on the main-server configuring the UIDs only (!) used
by the users of a vserver (e.g. an isolated area od UIDs).
