NONE is equivalent to /bin/true.  Both are just no-ops.

There was a bug in u4 that prevented correct accounting of PE jobs if 
accounting_summary was TRUE.  That's fixed in u5.  accounting_summary 
tells the qmaster whether to aggregate the accounting information for 
parallel jobs into a single accounting file entry.  If you're running 
huge parallel jobs, you want it set to TRUE.
