Understood.  It is worth noting in the last 2+ years we've been using  
this custom accounting system we haven't had anyone circumvent it (or  
attempt to do so).  We do have checks in the prologue that will reject  
the job if it was submitted with an 'unrwapped' qsub.  I do know of one  
other way to cheat the system (which I am working on fixing),  but it  
is fairly obscure and I don't see it being an issue with any of my  
current users.
