Thanks Paul!

For what it's worth, I used to do it that way on gridengine, but then had 
to switch to a multiple project scheme (which was easier to do, as it has 
groups of users).

I forget why we moved - I think it was because who used each partition was 
was orthogonal to who paid for it, but both sets of hardware was busy.

In this case, I think I can safely move back to scaling down the partition 
charge :)
