Re-evaluate WANT_SUSPEND, WANT_SUSPEND_VANILLA and WANT_VACATE
The default settings of
WANT_SUSPEND, WANT_SUSPEND_VANILLA and WANT_VACATE
(and possibly others)
need to be re-evaluated.
While the current defaults of
do not seem to be problematic,
they do not work well with other Condor features, like WANT_HOLD (see #2541).
We should study what are the side effects of changing them.

I tried them and it didn't obviously break anything :) I'll keep this open for a while until we do a bit more research on these. I'll read up in the condor manual and see if I can find any holes in our logic. I'll see if I can get Parag to poll his condor contacts as well.

We are still missing WANT_VACATE in the config files. Setting it to TRUE by default is ok as it gives 5 mins (based on KILL & MachineMaxVacateTime) for the job to cleanup when it is preempted.
Based on my interpretation from condor manual, it seems like we do want WANT_SUSPEND=False
There is no reference to WANT_SUSPEND_VANILLA & SUSPEND_VANILLA in condor manual. These variables seem to be redundant in condor config unless used for evaluating some other config parameters.
