I don't like the ASP solution.  It's not very flexible, and the
implications with overflowed ASPs can come back and bit you.  If you must
restrict with some hard compliance mechanism, you can always have
everything owned by one user profile, and then specify the MAXSTG parameter
for that user profile.
