Thanks Reuti, yes, that's probably the best approach.

A defined slot-limit for each exechost, an admin queue with
slots="exechost-slot-limit" for each host, a corresponding
admin pe with "$pe_slots" and a submit script that requests
exactly the number of queue slots for each host.  From my
experience I'd say not really fail-safe in a quickly evolving
heterogenous multi admin environment....  has anyone ever thought
about a built-in sge ressource "empty" or "nojobs" or "unused" or ....?
