Off the top of my head, I suspect MOM won't notice.  Since it happily
fills up partitions and doesn't abort the job when writes fail, it will
probably not notice when writes fail from quota violations.

We probably need to check for a write success somewhere.

Another option is to use the mom health check script.  Have it check the
file sizes and raise an error if one gets too big.  maui can coarsely
kill jobs on nodes that raise errors.   moab has fine grained control
based on the specific error message.
