Although I haven't looked closely at the documentation, the most recent
Maui/Moab newsletter outlined a new 'maleable jobs' feature in Moab that
may do what you want.  I guess someone from Cluster Resources would have to
comment on if that will some day be rolled into Maui (or if it even
supports maleable walltime).
