what about using the urgency policy and assigning a value in the last  
column of the complex definition for urgency - but it should already  
be 1000 by default, so getting a higher urgency when you request more  


Maybe youn have to adjust "weight_urgency" in the scheduler setup  
(qconf -msconf) to a higher value also to honor it.
