I'd like to keep the XML level low until I get confirmation that what
I'm after is actually supported.  My configuration is very simple but
extensive, and has the basic elements in place: I can see the scores and
utilization values in the crm_simulate output.  I have priorities set up
as well, but all resources are running, so that shouldn't matter as far
as I understand it.  Maybe I miss a setting to enable such behavior...
