In the source code/headers for the CDROM if you have the same as I do.. the
linux/include/linux/sbpcd.h has options. (don't know about others.)

As for the CPU quotas I like the idea of "no more than 20% of the CPU" at
once, but I don't know how implementable it would be. As for "only n hours
of CPU use per user", I don't see why this couldn't be better done in user
space... unless you mean absolute, cumulative time spent by the CPU for that
user only -- and you can, say, ftp for a _long_ time (with a 14.4 anyway)
before you show significant time on "top". -- most users won't be doing
really intensive stuff.

It also seems to me that time-in-CPU for a process should count as time
spent by that process, (this isn't too important)

.. but again, is it feasible? I wouldn't know.

It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both
incisive and probing when every twelve minutes one is interrupted by
twelve dancing rabbits singing about toilet paper.
