Claims like this always make me suspicious.  PBS is a specification.
They only need support for PBS, not OpenPBS, PBS-Pro or TORQUE.  It's
like websites supporting browsers instead of an HTML specification.

Of course, it is good and valid to publish a list of tested versions of
specific implementations.

I guess I'm glad I'm not a customer :)
