I stand corrected.  It is there.  I'm not sure why I wasn't seeing it
before.  Sorry for the brain fart.

The job attribute for "comment" does exist in torque, but it's up to the
scheduler to actuallly set it.

It looks like pbs_sched knows how to do this, but maui hasn't learned that
trick yet.  But if you are using maui, the details are in 'checkjob'.
