You can use a JSV to request a consumable complex when you notice the
"-sync y" option (or users are fair and do it on their own already).
The complex is defined on a global (`qconf -me global`) level as
999999 or alike, i.e. unlimited. Then you can use any RQS you like for
users and in total by a second separate RQS.
