Let users start writers but restrict access to other outqs

I would like users to have the capability to "start" their own writers, but I want to restrict them from viewing other people's outqs. What is the best way to go about this?
First of all, don't give them *SPLCTL. *SPLCTL is the equivalent of *ALLOBJ -- only for spooled files. Three attributes of the outq -- DSTDTA, OPRCTL and AUTCHK -- determine who can do what to a spooled file.
