Well, actually, we didn't USE "RES_REQ = order[-slots]".
We used "RES_REQ = order[-ut]". :-)

So I'm pretty sure that that matters less (or maybe not at all) than the
application that we used, the "packthis".

So if you want to spend a few more minutes on it, I would try that.  It
shouldn't be hard to test.

And we're thinking about jumping on the slurm bandwagon as well.
