I use the prologue/epilogue scripts to do our gold interactions. Mapping
groups to projects would be simple this way. I don't currently use
maui/moab, but when we did in the past I still used the prologue/epilogue
scripts. Though be warned that torque will sometimes run the epilogue script
multiple times for the same job, so you need to include the necessary checks
to avoid double charging for a job. See this thread for more details:
