I have what you request setup in my environment. Preemption is the only 
way to go. And you don't want to suspend the pre-empted jobs - you want 
to requeue them. If you suspend them, the just stop executing but still 
stay in memory, so the amount of memory needed by the preempting job may 
not be available.
