Would also happily go for a solution like

qsub [options] runscript.sh [runscript options]

but wouldn't that be a change in the default behaviour?  I have the impression 
that AC is very reluctant to accept anything that changes the default.

My suggested patch is an attempt to keep the default behaviour of not 
accepting any runscript options.  qsub will then only allow them if you 
explicitly state you want them by using '--'.
