Hi Killian,

We choose to penalize the users a little only for their previous busy jobs,
so we choose short turnarounds.

The busier the cluster, the longer should the parameters be, so the user
previous jobs will restrict the "future" ones more.
These should be adjusted based on the actual usage and impact to the users.
