For that case qmod -r <jobid> exists.

error is for cases when the end user made a failure that must be
fixed before rerun is possible. The queue error is for problem with
set-up problems which can be fixed by admins only.

which is absolutely identical with an already existing job. IIRC we didn't
have the exit 99 reschedule at that point in time.
