	Hi there!

	I'm evaluating grid engine for use in a 80 node cluster. Grid engine
	is easy to use and powerful, but I'm not sure if it can implement
	the policy I need:

	- All queue slots can be used by an user if there are no jobs from
		other users
	- If there are several users, queue slots should be equally divided
	Example (queue Q with 10 slots):

	- User A submits 20 jobs
		= User A gets 10 slots (10 more jobs in the waiting queue)
	- User B submits 10 jobs
		= User B and User A should get 5 slots each one. User B
		will get them when 5 user A's jobs finish. User A won't
		run more jobs till user B gets his share.
	- User C submits 10 jobs
		= User A should get 4 slots, user B 3 and user C 3 more.
		As before, user C will get slots when they become free.

	Is this possible?

	Thanks in advance,
