    Maybe there need to be memory quotas. Dunno. But referring to the
    file system. It is the file doing the write that returns with an error
    code. Not another random process that happened to be using disk space. Also,
    reserving 5% (for root) isn't considered to be a horrible kludge to allow
    for recovery from such situations.
