With the available advance reservation, it was already on the list to use it to start jobs at a specific time
(or get a message when it's not possible). Means qrsub and just one (or more)  job submitted into this

qrsub could be extended to allow an option that will schedule this reservation cron-like at specified
times. All jobs submitted to this reservation will then run with each invocation of the AR (or only at the
x-th one). Another option to the cron argument to qrsub could be the number of runs in total:
somethig like run every hour but only 150 times in total.

- New variable $REPETITION, which can be checked inside the job script for the no. of the run.

- Behavior when one of the repetitions can't be run: simply skip this one or shift it to the next possible
date (user selectable).

- Possibly: append an index to the name of the output file for the number of the repetition, or a new
"pseudo-variable" for -o/-e like $repetition
