Attaching a zero "host" consumable to a queue should be allowed though.
This would allow certain queues to be precluded in the selection

Eg submitting a job without a queue specification:

  qsub -l starcd=1 -pe mpich 16 ...

I might wish to define starcd=0 for my 'cleanup' queue, which might
consist of 128 slots per (dual-cpu) host.
Perhaps using "starcd=NONE" instead of "starcd=0" in the queue file
specification would ease parsing?
