Nice... off hand I see 2 things that could also be added.

1) We could make  HomeDirectorySizes("/home"); configurable via
zz-disk_space.conf so "/home" is a variable that could be re-targetted
[ie /export/home, or /home/users/ etc....]

2) The SunOS switch has df -h which is not always the case Solaris 8 and
older will not undertstand "-h". So this one needs more logic in switch.
[Plus /usr/xpg4/bin/df is the one that needs to be used so there is a
path problem also.]
