That sounds fine from a security standpoint, but dreadful from an
accounting standpoint, if I want to charge departments at my
institution for their CPU time use.  With W2H it still gets accounted
to the individual user, because the jobs get run as that user.  Is
there any sensible accounting facility that will tie in with CPU use
in SeqWeb?
