Define a complex like this:

short             short               BOOL        ==    FORCED      NO 
        0        0

Then in the queue config for your short queue, have:

complex_values        short=1

Then, only jobs that request '-l short' will go to the short queue.  And 
jobs that request '-l short' will only be run on the short queue.  That 
sounds like what you want.
