I'm also interested in this (in my case to allow oversubscription only
for interactive jobs), but as far as I know, that is not possible in

But one possible way to something similar is to have a partition only
for interactive jobs and a different partition for batch jobs, and then
enforce that each job uses the right partition. In order to do this, I
think we can use the Lua contrib module (check the job_submit.lua
