Search the archives for "When do machine RANK settings apply?" my
message dated January 12, 2005 details one way I've managed to mutate
condor into an almost job-priority based queueing system. There's
actually a new piece of information that I'm about to post in response
to Robert Parrott's post titled "Default User priority factor" that may
also interest you and was necessary to get our job-priority based stuff
working. It's not 100% perfect, but it's good enough.

To the condor team: pluggable negotiation algorithms would be a very
nice feature. :-)
