The -@ <optionsfile> flag to qsub is a handy way
to encapsulate multiple request options into one
place.  Currently, you have to specify the full
path to the file.

However, if there were a default path (eg,
$SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/options/), then the
admin could create a set of prescribed options
files with the right combination of request
options, and users would need only to specify a
single name for each different job type.

Ideally, this could be done in a way in which the
options directory needs only to exist on the
master host (eg, qmaster checks for the specified
file and rejects the "qsub" if not found).
Otherwise this would include yet another
dependency on file-sharing, which should be
avoided as much as possible.

There is a big overlap with issue #24.
