Each Cell is a seperate SGE cluster... the advantage of multiple cells is
that you can share the binaries but have different configurations for each

However, jobs queued in a cell can't be run by a different cell, unless you
define transfer queues to do load balancing

The qmaster doesn't care much about the binary path on the execution

How about submit only hosts??

Without defining hosts as "admin host", users won't be able to modify
cluster configuration, even if they login as root.

Easy, un setuid root for the rsh/rlogin in $SGE_ROOT/utilbin/<arch>/
