Hi Chris,

I don't want to see any SGE forks, but right now there are bugs in SGE
that needs to be addressed.

If we just simply let the bugs sit there in SGE 6.2u5, then sooner or
later, other batch systems (open source or commercial) will get market
share from SGE. We love SGE and we want it to grow.
