This is excellent! It is perfect for us, and it's even the simplest way.

I have another question, though. Suppose I have (cluster) queue spanning
ten hosts; the hosts have all h_vmem=1G and the queue has h_vmem=4G. What
happens if I submit 5 jobs with h_vmem=1G? From the manual pages of
complex and queue_conf, I get the impression that the queue limit limits
the amount of h_vmem in *the whole* queue, thus making it impossible to
consume more than 4G of memory in the queue although in my example this
would mean there are 6 hosts doing nothing. Is this correct? I can not
believe it is, but that's how I understand the manual anyway.
