I have a partition where one of the nodes has a node-locked license.
That license is not used by everyone that uses the partition.
They are cloud nodes, so weights do not work (there is an open bug about 

I need to have jobs 'avoid' that node by default. I am thinking I can 
use a feature constraint, but that seems to only apply to those that 
want the feature. Since we have so many other users, it isn't feasible 
to have them modify their scripts, so having it avoid by default would work.

Any ideas how to do that? Submit LUA perhaps?
