[torquedev] qsub - processing options and order of precedence for resource requirements

Hi,

Comment in qsub.c states that command line have precedence over what
was requested last in the submitted script. That is not always the
case.
Additional attributes are currently silently ignored (like qos
specified via -W x=qos:blah)  when submitted script has a line that
specifies another qos.

I'd like to propose that output from qsub_filter takes precedence
before command line parameters and options in the script. That would
require modifying qsub to do additional parse but the result would
enable site admins to mold submitted jobs to match policies/resources
in more transparent and flexible fashion. What is the consensus on
that?

Thanks,
Bartosz
