Thanks very much for the tip.

Just to be super clear:
>> In the case of multiple parallel environments  whose names match the name string, the parallel environment with the most available slots is chosen.
Can I impose the sorting I want by setting the number of slots in the PE 
configuration, or are you talking about the number of job slots  
available via the queues at scheduling time?  I.e:  symmetric32 might 
have 200 slots, symmetric16 (pe_slots = 16) might have 190, and so on.  
If so, then that's exactly what I was looking for.

Yes.  That's also exactly what I'm looking for.  The wildcard PE is good 
- but what you describe seems more elegant from the user perspective.
