The new slotwise subordination in 6.2u5 gets you close, but I don't see 
a way to implement exactly what you're asking.  The current fairshare 
scheduling policy falls short on two counts.  First, it can't operate on 
arbitrary complexes, and second, it isn't able to force retribution 
through requeueing or killing jobs.  Both are long-standing RFEs.

Sorry.  I'm fresh out of clever tricks.  Maybe Reuti has an idea.
