yes.  it requires zero-root privs.  a non-priv'd scientist should be able to
setup a linux-cluster from scratch in 3-10 minutes.  including compilation of
all code.  rq does not even require any ports to be opened - all coms are via
nfs so, if your nfs install is good (note that very few are - locking ports
are generally hosed as sysads don't understand how to firewall nfs in my
experience) then you are set.

people have indeed been doing similar things - dynamically setting up
clusters, running stuff through them, and tearing them down.
