[torqueusers] qsub submit filter questions

Hi folks,

We'd love to be able to do some sanity checking of users jobs, and possibly 
the ability to reject a job at submit time if a user asks for an account that 
they don't belong to, but it's not clear if that's possible.

Is the information that the user specifies on the command line made available 
to the script ?

Looking at the code that processes the submit filter it appears that it simply 
creates a copy of the script, runs that through the filter program and then 
uses the output of the filter as the new script to use.

For our purposes it would be useful if the code checked for an explicit return 
code that we could use to signal that the output of the submit filter is not 
a script but is rather an error message to report to the user before exiting.

What do you folks think ?
