Hi,
i wish there is a option to display die mountpoint instead the Device when user type quota. On large nfs systems displaying the nfs path is very confusing.

    I vote for showing the mountpoint instead of the device being the default.
    Users (and admins) often know there mountpoint (as they know their path...) but not the device.
    The lookup of the device from the output of commands like "mount" or "df" to get the mountpoint is simpler done by the program that by a human.

    Sun Solaris "quota" shows the mountpoint since I know it (many years...).

    Latest quota(1) command has --show-mntpoint option which should do what you need.
