so I've just added a torque.cfg parameter called RERUNNABLEBYDEFAULT (I'm
open to suggestions for a better name) to trunk in svn (so this change will
appear in TORQUE 2.4).

if this parameter is set to false in torque.cfg:


then it alters the default behavior of setting rerunnable to true if the
rerunnable option is not specified.

If you want to change the default behavior before TORQUE 2.4.0 is released,
please follow Chris's suggestion quoted above - changing
set_attr(&attrib,ATTR_r,"TRUE"); to set_attr(&attrib,ATTR_r,"FALSE"); will
chage the default value of the rerunnable option to FALSE.
