This is actually precisely what we do.  We want to decouple definition 
of the application from the underlying queuing system (and operating 
system).  This enables a number of rather nice things.

You can see some of the stuff we have done here 
(http://scalability.org/?p=422) and here (http://scalability.org/?p=425).

It ran its first (hard coded) job from web to cluster tuesday morning, 
and should be less hardcoded in the next week-ish.  Would have liked to 
have shown it at SC, but this fell through (and a shameless plug for 
people needing a cluster/HPC demo there, feel free to ping me offline :) )
