You realize that BDB just grows and grows, right? It never, ever gets
smaller? If a user commits a huge file to his repository area, then
gets scolded and deletes the file, the file still remains in history
forever. The database doesn't shrink.

That said, you can certainly write a program to use the svn_fs.h API to
walk the repository filesystem and add up file-sizes. I'm just not
sure that your quota idea makes any sense to enforce anymore.
