[GE users] Restricting number of jobs per user in the qw state?

In order to more effectively "encourage" users to use array jobs, I've 
been thinking about limiting the number of jobs users can have waiting in 
the queue at any one time.  In other words, I don't care if a user has 
2000 jobs running.  That's fine.  But I don't want them to be able to have 
more than 100 (e.g.) jobs waiting to be run.  If all 100 of those are 
10,000 task array jobs, that's still fine.  I'd much rather that than 1e6 
individual jobs.
