[GE users] group resource quota

Are they enforced by the scheduler then? Will a job be stopped if a 
limit, such as

limit hosts {*} to virtual_total=$mem_total*0.95

is exceeded? And then if so, which job(s) will be halted/notified/etc.? 
I'm just trying to get an idea of what I can do with rqs to establish 
some sane limits.
