  My :-) above related to me myself (not to SGE) - SGE is nice product,
and in comparison w/NQS (we use, btw, Generic NQS on some old SGI serevrs)
SGE has additionally not only PE support, but also for example Globus features.
  But the "type" of MAUI integration w/SGE looks (from this discussion) not

I understand, that I may use latest version of Maui if I'll compile
its source. According Alan Scheinine <scheinin at> message here,
MAUI simple may submit things to OpenPBS/SGE. 

 But what means then MAUI integration in Sun binary version of SGEEE ? 
Does it means that I have pre-compiled versions of both MAUI
and SGEE or only that binary SGEEE includes all the necessary
corrections, allowing it to work w/more old Maui version ?
