Hi Jan,

The short answer is 'no'. The fairshare in maui is not hierarchical.  As Gabe notes, you can use 'accounts' to correspond to projects or experiments, but it's still a flat rather than hierarchical share.  I guess you could readily take a logical hierarchical set of shares and convert them to a flat set for the 'leaves' but you would not get the same sort of fairshare between peer nodes in the hierarchy that you would with a 'proper' hierarchical fairshare model.
