That's quite correct, an Idle job is one that can run if resources become
available, i.e. it's not blocked by a policy such as the number of running or
idle jobs a user can have, or it's not been deferred because of a launching
or RM problem.

Whilst I don't use Maui here I can confirm that Moab does appear to let normal
users see the priorities for jobs in the queue with "showq -i".
