this is great and sounds reasonable. It will cover a few RFEs in  
Issuzilla at once.

One small question: there was somewhere on the mailing list  
mentioning, that his software needs one license per host, independed  
from the number of processes/jobs running there (host-locked floating  
license). As far as I understand the complex attached as HOST  
consumable right now, it's per job on a node. So to cover his request  
we would need another type like HOSTLOCKED / HOSTONCE or so? The  
total amount could be specified by setting it in global then.
