[GE users] auto rerun lower priority jobs when higher are waiting?

Can I instruct gridengine to automatically rerun lower-priority jobs if 
higher are waiting in the queue. (if they are marked rerunnable)?

The majority of our computations are doing checkpointing and are in fact 
rerunnable, but sometime a user really just wants to get a bunch of jobs 
on so they send it with a higher priority. But they still have to wait 
for the lower priority jobs to leave the nodes.

It would be nice if gridengine just notiched that the running jobs ideed 
are rerunnable, so it just pulls them off and launches the higher 
priority stuff.
