I'd like to be able to set the SLURM_JOB_NAME from within the 
script I'm submitting to `sbatch`.  So, e.g., with the script 

    export SLURM_JOB_NAME='myname'
    sleep 120

and then `sbatch myscript.sh`, I'd like the job's name to be 

Is this somehow possible?  When I tried the above approach, it 
didn't work (squeue reported the job's name to be 'myscript.sh').

Thanks for your help,
