a) I don't think hod is actually part of any unit tests, so including it would likely only
be a burden on the tarball size.
b) The edu community uses this quite extensively, evidenced by the topic coming up on the
mailing lists at least once every two months or so and has for years.  Can't say that about
the other contrib modules other than the schedulers and streaming.
c) The community that does use it has even submitted a patch that we've ignored.
d) With SGE in flux, there is no equivalent functionality as far as I'm aware.
