I wrote some network quota code a few years ago (ipt_quota) which worked nicely but thinking about concurrency issues made my head hurt so I haven't done a great deal on it since. I'd have liked to have had (or at least known about) this back then. Having nice, reliable, fast counters helps everyone so time spent getting this right now isn't necessarily time wasted.
