[GE users] Allowing parallel jobs to run on busy cluster

We have a small cluster that consists of several SMP machines.  We
have been running into the situation that many serial jobs have been
submitted (and are in the queue) and a user wants to run an 8-process
parallel process on a single SMP machine.  Is it possible without
setting arbitrary resource limits on particular users (those
submitting the serial jobs) to give priority to the parallel job?
Otherwise, what happens is that the serial jobs always take precedence
until there are enough processors open on a single machine to run the
parallel job (the PE is set up as $pe_slots).

Thanks,
Sean
