zfs quota per user

within a jail ?

let's say I have a jail and a dataset /home and what to give 1GB of space to users, something like:

/home/user1  (1GB quota)
/home/user2  (1GB quota)

I know that I can do per user something like :

zfs create zroot/jail/public/home/user1
zfs set quota=1G zroot/jail/public/home/user1

but that's exactly what I want to avoid.

I would like to at least only create zroot/jail/public/home with a quota of 1GB and that automatically all created users inherit that quota per home.
with out need to manually have to create the user home and set a quota.

this is because I have users stored on a  ldap db and I would like just to migrate does users to a jail in a new server so that new users when login to the new jail, home is created automatically and quotas applied with out need to create a dataset per each user.

I want to avoid modifying the "ldap_pam" scripts etc. 

Any ideas ?
