I would expect qresub (as an admin) to do the same as the rerun mechanism 
does. If I want to relocate a users job from one machine to some other 
machine I can simply reboot it and it will start somewhere else, given that 
the rerun flag is set.

But of course I don't know the implementation details so I cannot really argue 
with that...

Another case where I think qresub as an admin can be useful is the following:

  - User submits job
  - Job runs, errors out because of some problem
  - Admin fixes problem
  - Admin qresubs other users jobs

The current behavior of qresub is, at least for me, the most unexpected one.


ps: to add to the "can of worms": why wouldn't qresub work with tasks?
