I was thinking of something like that as a basic solution too but didn't
know where to start to be honest, I have shellinabox running so I suppose a
script which allows a file to be uploaded and transferred would suffice. The
storage could then be limited by adding limits per users on the server

I have always meant to learn python or similar so I suppose now would be a
good time to start, it can't be any worse than doing this lot:
