[Mauiusers] ignoring reservations/etc for job start

Is there some way to get a job to run always, no matter what 
(reservations task/proc availability etc)?

It seems MOAB supports this option for standing reservations SRCFG:

"IGNRSV 	request will ignore existing resource reservations allowing the 
reservation to be forced onto available resources even if this conflicts 
with other reservations."

But I can't find anything about it for maui and how to apply it to for 
example a QOSCFG or similar. I've tried making a QOSCFG with IGNALL or 
USERESERVED but it does not seem to have the desired effect. Maui keeps 
reporting "idle procs do not meet requirements", which I want to ignore 
and just start it. ;)

Is it even possible, has anyone done anything like this?

There are really only three types of people:

   Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen
   and those who say, "What happened?"
