Replying to my own message. In the end I've recompiled and repackaged 
the version of quota (3.17) that is in F14, for F16. I've renamed the 
package and command to quota3, and removed all other files from the new 
package. This installs fine alongside the F16 quota package (version 
4.00-pre1) and works nicely.

I'm guessing the problem with using version 4 is that we're still using 
NFS version 3 here. Perhaps quota 4 can't talk to NFS 3 servers.
