I did a modification to how qlicserver handles negative limits to make this happen. This works well as long as the jobs on the grid are relative short. But if the jobs are long then the interactive jobs can eat the X free licenses before a grid job completes. And then you have angry mails incoming asking you to fix it asap :)

This sounds interesting. Let us know how far you get and how you fare.
