[GE users] Resource quotas vs max_u_jobs

Currently we have max_u_jobs limited to 50 on a cluster with approx 150 

Now this isn't ideal as it means that users cannot submit any more than 
50 jobs at a time.

What we'd prefer is if users can actually submit up to 100 jobs, but 
only 50 would actually be allowed to run at any one time. The idea being 
that if someone else with higher priority came along in the meantime 
then their jobs would go through first.

I've looked as resource quotas but I've not managed to restrict slots on 
a per user basis, just on a whole cluster basis.
