Indeed I should have written which is meant to be true. since I was planning on providing a quick (and very dirty) app to allow the vacation of an arbitrary number of machines at user request but only taking out those of lesser rank. I think I will steer clear of assuming a negative value indicates no job running and wait for 6.7.1

I have two different replies to this now (ref: Mark Silberstein)

Since I have set the priority_halflife to 1 second to make prior user load immaterial in assigning the user priorities will never be significantly different except while jobs are running. Will this change negatively impact other internal processes/optimizations expecting a significant value?

The state transition diagram in the docs is pretty clear. want_vacate = false; go straight to killing, do not pass go, do not collect a checkpoint. (which makes sense)
