[gridengine users] preventing certain jobs from being suspended (subordinated)

We had this problem lots, and I can't quite remember how I solved it - I 
think it might've been either a JSV or a qsub wrapper that shoves all 
GPU jobs into the superordinate queue.

Now that I'm thinking about this again - does the subordinate queue 
setting accept 'queueu@@hostgroup' syntax like everything else? Don't 
remember if I ever tried that.
