FYI, that's not entirely accurate. We now have leases that are created by
each client, and each lease has an owner_id= field, but that field is always
zero, so the server doesn't actually know which node owns the lease. When we
finish the Invitation/Introduction code, we'll have something to put in
there.

I'd phrase this one as:

 * Shares now contain leases, which gives us the information to compute which
   shares are safe to delete, but we haven't yet implemented deletion itself.
   Eventually, this will enable client quota tracking. (tickets #119, #67)


cheers,
