You could probably rig something up with a load sensor and the suspend 
threshold for the queue.  You basically set up the load sensor to 
measure the number of jobs in the user's way and set the suspend 
threshold to suspend jobs until that number is 0.  That magic will be in 
writing the load sensor.
