Does anyone know anything about GNQS (Generic NQS)?  I would like to use
it as a replacement for DQS (since DQS is non-free and GNQS is GPL'd),
but I found it confusing to set up.  I'm also not sure if it can cope
with MPI/PVM jobs.

In my opinion, we are really lacking a good free (DFSG) queuing system.
Perhaps I should look at GNU queue again.  Last time I looked at it, it
wasn't really usable.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?  I'm currently using DQS, but I
don't like it since it's poorly documented, unreliable, and non-free.
