Yes, I'm coming to realize that. So, ok, the right thing is to simply
request the relevant resources, and let the scheduler figure it out.

Then is there a way to group resources together? Some sort of resource
alias? So I could say "-l jobtype1" and sge knows that this type of job
requires 5g ram, 2CPUs, and complex resources foo, bar, and baz, and
"-l jobtype2" which requests a different set of resources?
