Quotas in

Is there any way to exclude certian file extensions from counting against a quota?  In my environment we often have large .pst files stored in a users home directory which is simply a cifs share that users are mapped to via a login script.  We would like to apply a quota to these home directories but not have the .pst files count towards that total.  Is there any way to accomplish this?

The only ways I can think of is to either write the .pst files elsewhere so as not to hit the quota or somehow get the .pst file owned by different user but still accessible by the user.
