[torqueusers] Limiting number of running jobs user selectable

Is there an easy way to limit the number of running job for a user,   
where the user can choose?

For example user wants to submit 100 jobs, but never have more than 20  
running at a time (politics)  but has the need some times to go to all  
the available nodes.

I was looking at the depend flags, and while you could make the normal  
graph using after or before, is there a way to say  "job only if  
running less than count" ?
