I think everyone using the farm has good faith, but it's difficult to
proactively monitor our used disk space on each server (that's not what
I think about when I first get up in the morning).  An idea that's less
radical than periodically deleting people's files would be to periodically
mail users how much they are using on each server.  If I received this:

  You are currently using:

   456M on gcc111
   2.6G on gcc112

it would prompt me to go remove what I don't need.
