I don't think it will result in a huge increase in memory use.  I think that
while qsub will allocate PBS_DEPEND_LEN bytes to use when it calls
parse_depend_list,  set_attr will allocate strlen + 1 bytes when it sets the
attribute value to send to pbs_server with the job, so while this would
increase the maximum it isn't like the maximum size would be consumed for
every job with a dependency list
