Changes (by gigem):

  * status:  new => infoneeded_new


 bjm added the preferred input support based on an idea from me.  I
 envisioned something more flexible, but couldn't come up with a simple
 enough implementation to justify it.  We settled on the single, preferred
 input approach because it was simple and an expert user could use it to
 coerce the scheduler into doing the desired thing when needed.

 My gut reaction is to reject this new patch for the same reasons we didn't
 do more in the first place -- it isn't flexible enough to justify the
 extra complexity.  I'd much rather see effort put into making the existing
 power priority support be made more accessible.

 Still, I might consider this change, and that's an awfully big might, if
 the following issues can be addressed.

 1. Use negative numbers to identify inputgroups instead of +1000.  I
 thinks that would be a little more elegant.

 2. The join condition on the inputgroup table in the scheduler BUQ (big
 ugly query) is bogus.

 3. This is the biggie.  Inputs can belong to multiple inputgroups.  Even
 if the join condition mentioned above is fixed, this wouldn't be handled
