[Beowulf] maui: how to set different walltime for different users

We do this by individual requests to extend walltime and as sysadmin use 
the "qalter -l walltime=720:00:00 ,jobid>" to increase to 720 hours 
say.  If it isn't too many jobs involved in the requests, we can easily 
handle this.  Otherwise, a queue per user or time slot, protected with 
ACL, is going to be the only way around this.
