Great! We're glad another site has decided to take advantage of multiple 
resource managers.

About the second issue, Moab will run the WorkloadQuery function for 
each resource manager that it finds configured.  If the WorkloadQuery 
function has not been defined then this message still prints out (it 
doesn't mean anything really).  We'll put a patch in there to not print 
out anything if no function has been defined.

About the second issue, it is not yet possible to confine Moab's search 
to only those nodes that are reported on both.  This feature might be 
available later, but as of right now, Moab was built with the idea of 
allowing multiple resource managers control disjoint resources, with one 
coherent view given by Moab.

If you have any recommendations for the documentation (from your 
experience) please let us know.
