Probably irrelevant after so many suggestions, but Caos NSA had this very 
nice 'pam_slurm' module which allows a user to login only to those nodes 
on which the said user has active jobs (allocated through slurm). The 
principal idea ["you are welcome to be bring your allocated node (and, 
thus, your job) to a halt if that's what you want"], sounds pedagogically 
attractive ... ;-)
