Not really.  Its putting in the server what would normally be in the
scheduler.  Schedulers should be parsing node resource information from
MOMs and ensuring job resource requests for each node do not exceed the
nodes resource capacity.  Simon is putting a version of that logic in
the server.  Then a simple qrun will "do the right thing" for all
resources.

Since a certain amount of site policy can go into resource allocation,
I'm not sure this should go in the server.
