Well, it's a little clunky, and requires the extra ssh. But then what
about qstat? qhost? All the other sge commands?

This is just a permission thing, right? If gridengine didn't check,
everything would still work, right? So, is there an option
(or configuration or something) to make gridengine allow all submit
hosts, or would I have to find the check in the code,
take it out, and rebuild?
