Keith is exactly right about why it's always been the range it has --
but Ian is right to question whether that makes sense. It doesn't.
As it happens, it's already on my plate to extend the queue priority
range to any integer value, for other reasons. I can't promise a date
(it probably won't happen before Condor Week), but I'll do my best to
fit it in soon...

Is there a technical reason for this limitation on user-assigned job

something like [-100:100]? The broader the range, the better. So
[-int:int] would be really great.
-20:19 is a very typical job priority on linux/unix systems, so perhaps
Condor uses -20:20 to be similar: a sysadmin familiar with nice-ing a
job will be comfortable with Condor's JobPrio parameters.
