[torqueusers] query job memory limits

Is it possible to query a job's memory limit from withing the running 
program? I'm assuming that there may be a node/host wide total imposed 
by the batch system. For example on an SGI UV which looks like a single 
host to the program, I'd like to be able to know how much ram my all 
processes in my program can use in order to size internal caches 
appropriately. It seems that this limit is enforced by the batch system, 
however there doesn't seem to be consistency across various sites. Any 
advise would be greatly appreciated.
