      Two-day boondoggle to support "/scratch", an optional large, shared filesystem
      for users.  To do this, I needed to find all the instances where /proj is used
      and behave accordingly.  The boondoggle part was the decision to gather up all
      the hardwired instances of shared directory names ("/proj", "/users", etc.)
      so that they are set in a common place (via unexposed configure variables).
      This is a boondoggle because:
      
      1. I didn't change the client-side scripts.  They need a different mechanism
         (e.g., tmcd) to get the info, configure is the wrong way.
      
      2. Even if I had done #1 it is likely--no, certain--that something would
         fail if you tried to rename "/proj" to be "/mike".  These names are just
         too ingrained.
      
      3. We may not even use "/scratch" as it turns out.
      
      Note, I also didn't fix any of the .html documentation.  Anyway, it is done.
      To maintain my illusion in the future you should:
      
      1. Have perl scripts include "use libtestbed" and use the defined PROJROOT(),
         et.al. functions where possible.  If not possible, make sure they run
         through configure and use @PROJROOT_DIR@, etc.
      
      2. Use the configure method for python, C, php and other languages.
      
      3. There are perl (TBValidUserDir) and php (VALIDUSERPATH) functions which
         you should call to determine if an NS, template parameter, tarball or
         other file are in "an acceptable location."  Use these functions where
         possible.  They know about the optional "scratch" filesystem.  Note that
         the perl function is over-engineered to handles cases that don't occur
         in nature.

      Add new script to notify users when they are over their quota. Runs from · 38310b4e

      cron daily, on the fs node (ops) as root. Uses lots of configure variables
      so that it does the right thing in any installation, without any
      customization.
      
      One possible caveat regarding quotas: If FS_NODE != USERNODE, they don't
      have a login on the fs machine. So checking their quota won't work unless
      the rpc.rquotad(8) daemon is running on FS_NODE, which we currently don't
      do.
      
      In order to do this right, I had to add a new configure var,
      FS_WITH_QUOTAS, that has a space separated list of file systems that have
      quotas enabled. (Ie the default is 'FS_WITH_QUOTAS="/q /users"'.) It
      doesn't have any default, since I couldn't come up with a reasonable one.
      All the defs files have been updated appropriately to define this new
      variable.
