Hi. Is it possible to ensure a limit of one queued run for each job, prioritizing the most recent, or any other way to discard runs queued for too long? I have a problem right now with a job that executes every few minutes, which sometimes can surpass the scheduled period, and it ends up generating a snowball effect of runs accumulating in queue due to dagster always prioritizing the oldest partition pending to run, while I would prefer if it just skipped right to the last scheduled and leave a gap to be treated later.

hi @Juan Freire! one (admittedly somewhat jank) solution would be to set the priority of your runs to be a function of the current timestamp (to give newer runs higher priority), but there's currently no great solution for automatically removing older runs in the queue

Thank you so much! Would you recomend opening an issue on this? (if there isn´t one already)
