[GE users] Reversing Sequence Number Sorting?

I have a queue that I've configured to
sort jobs by queue instance sequence
number. This works fine.

However, one of the people I work with
observed that this setting results in the
nodes with lower sequence numbers
running more jobs than the higher sequence
number nodes when the queue isn't
completely full. He was wondering if there
might be long term physical damage if some
nodes, e.g. the low sequence number nodes,
are always 100% busy. This probably generates
way more heat.

Is there a way to sort by descending sequence number?
Changing this parameter every year or so might
be a good thing to level out wear and tear.
