[GE users] Dynamic RQS

I have a global license preemption issue that I could easily solve by 
using dynamic RQS at the queue level, something like:

   name         limit_lic
   description  NONE
   enabled      TRUE
   limit        queues {lic_regression} to master=4-$user_lic
   name         limit_actual_queues
   description  NONE
   enabled      TRUE
   limit        queues {vcs_user} to user_lic=4

It looks like dynamic RQS is only available at a host level, is there 
any chance it will be supported for queues in the future, or any other 
way to work around this? 

Another solution I could use would be if two queues shared a resource, 
but one queue "saw" that more of the resource was available.  Eg. 
regression queue and user queue together have 4 licenses, but user queue 
thinks 8 are available (which will let it preempt and I'll kill the 
regression jobs to free the license.
