[gridengine users] sanity check on usage of "-p" priority value: per-user effect or global across waitlist?

Nah, the weight_priority won't help. It just determines how much 
influence the -p has vs things like job wait time or urgency. If you 
have none of those then all being equal it would have the same effect as 
if you left it untouched. And if you have influence from waiting time or 
urgency or others then setting the prio weight low would make it just 
totally insignificant.
