I have a situation where I want a job to run if EITHER of 2 consumable resources are available?

For instance, I have 2 consumable resources ?foo? and ?bar?, each with a value of say 4.

The kind of thing I want to do (logically!) is:

qsub ?l foo=1 OR ?l bar=1 my_job_script.sh

I know you can use Boolean expressions in the ?value? field for ?-l resource=value?
but I guess what I?m looking for is a way to do it in the ?resource? field.

I?ve dug around looking at the ?complex? man pages, but does anyone have an idea
how I can do this (or something similar)?
