The following are from SGE's drmaa.h
DRMAA_DEADLINE_TIME          "drmaa_deadline_time
DRMAA_WCT_HLIMIT             "drmaa_wct_hlimit"
DRMAA_WCT_SLIMIT             "drmaa_wct_slimit"
DRMAA_DURATION_HLIMIT        "drmaa_durartion_hli
DRMAA_DURATION_SLIMIT        "drmaa_durartion_sli

So, either it does support them and the
drmaa_get_attribute_names() function
incorrectly doesn't return them.  Or, perhaps
the get/set attribute
functions know how to error if these are used?
But, since I just tested the
get/set functions for one of the above...  I'm
inclined to think that
drmaa_get_attribute_names()  is not behaving as
intended.  I'll file a

In fact those enlisted attributes are not yet supported.
Changing into RFE b/c support is optional.
Lowering priority.

Lowered priority.  With the native specification and job categories, there are
plenty of ways to work around not having all the optional attributes.
