This is the normal type of quota within ZFS. it is applied to a
dataset and limits the size of the dataset, such as
You can have as many datasets ("filesystems") as you like (within
practical limits), which is probably the way to go in regards to home
But another option is
zfs set groupquota at groupname=100GB example1/blah
zfs set userquota at user1=200MB example1/blah
This would be available on the Solaris implementation.
I am not 100% certain that this is available under the BSD implementations,
even if QUOTA is enabled in your kernel config.
In the past.... the BSD implementation of ZFS never seemed to be as
stable, functional, or performant as the OpenSolaris/Illumos version.
