If the host-based license accounting is limited to interactive use, then you
could just bypass the GridEngine and use these licenses directly. The
qlicserver license management will catch this as "external" usage and reduce
the number of managed resources accordingly.
Within the qlicserver, you might need to adjust the munge_licenses()
function to collapse all license usage from one machine together, but that
depends on what the license server is reporting.

If you need the same mechanism for batch jobs (with the GridEngine), the
implementation will become a bit more complicated. BTW: you might even find
the limiter within qlicserver to be useful. With it, you can prevent batch
jobs from stealing all the licenses.
