Multisite over-quota message fine-tuning

Currently if you visit Media -> Add New whilst over-quota on Multisite, you're greeted by the following string:

Sorry, you must delete files before you can upload any more.

IMO, This could be worded better (Thanks to JohnONolan for some input here), such as:

Sorry, you have filled your maximum upload quota (...MB). To upload more items, please delete some files to make room.

Thoughts on some better wording for this?

I've attached a patch. It allows Super Admins to customize the message and sets a default. This could be useful, in my opinion, if you run different types of networks (like mine is a university network; I'd rather tell people to contact a certain person and request more space than to just delete files).

No message customization please. That's what filters and gettext are for. Variables cannot be passed to __().

Current suggestion, with no suggestion on what to do to decrease space: "Sorry, you have filled your storage quota ($amt MB)."

Surely people know that a quota means they need to delete if that's what they want to do. I don't like suggesting they delete files.

They also have the option of asking the site admin to increase their limit. I like:

"Sorry, you have filled your storage quota ($amt MB)."
