Quick look at the approach says it is not the correct approach.

A very quick glance makes it seem your version only works for people with
a single quota device. Many of use have multiple devices...
*Maybe* you could setup an array which maps the mount points or login
directories to the physical device names... Then use this as a 'translation
table' for the output versus the posix login info. But this is kind of a
Did you fix the problem of line wrapping on long device names? (I didn't
