Maybe not assign the queues to schedules but to project groups ?
Currently whenever I want different project groups to build in parallel,
I have to create schedules for each project group. That leads to various
'hourly' schedules just because of assigning queues to them which is
needless somehow. If the queues could be assigned to these groups, no
redundant schedules are needed any more. Same applies to distributed
builds, I think.
