[Beowulf] torque vs openpbs?

our cluster environment is beginning to tax our openpbs installation.
It runs fine on our old cluster (PIII's/10/100 switch) but is a bit quirky
on the newer opterons (gig switches, more mem...etc.)
Pricing for PBSPro is, well, a bit outrageous and I'm considering
Torque/Maui combo.

Any thoughts/feedback on the size of the torque community, it's life
SGE is currently not an option as we have 3rd party code which interfaces
well w/ PBS but not SGE.
