[Mauiusers] How to have per-node per-user priorities

Using Torque & Maui, I'd like to have a configuration such that users X 
and Y can both use all of the cluster's CPUs as long as only one has 
jobs queued, and if both have jobs queued, then a fixed percentage of 
the CPU's will be used for X's jobs, and the remainder used for Y's 
jobs.   Both of these users should have a priority boost such that their 
jobs squeeze out those of other users (but not entirely each others').

Would this do it?

USERCFG[PowerUser1]      PRIORITY=100  MAXNODE=20,30
USERCFG[PowerUser2]      PRIORITY=100  MAXNODE=10,30

(Assuming 30 total nodes).
