I think that's mostly a complaint about the conditionals we've written
so far, tbh. As I commented on the bug, when I clicked the container
job (which the rules happen to have evaluated to being "manual"), every
job (recursively) downstream of it got enqueued, which isn't what
you're describing. So I think if you can describe the UX you'd like we
can write rules to make that reality.

But I don't really know which jobs are most expensive in terms of
bandwidth, or storage, or CPUs, and even if I knew those I don't know
how to map those to currency. So I'm not sure if the UI we'd like would
minimize the cost the way we'd like.
