One case for not changing the default is that Moab and Maui both depend on
completed jobs appearing so that they can harvest appropriate information
from them. This doesn't mean we absolutely can't change it - these could be
made so that they request appropriately based on TORQUE versions - but it
does mean that if we did change it then we'd break backwards compatibility
with older versions of Moab/Maui, which is a significant consideration.
