[Mauiusers] task distribution policy question

We are having issues with the distribution of tasks on SMP nodes, it 
seems like maui allocates resources using a round robin algorithm and we 
would like to implement something more MPI/shm friendly.
The TASKDISTRIBUTIONPOLICY parameter documentation doesn't provide much 
details about it's use, it only informs about it's two possible values 
Is there any other documentation on how to define a LOCAL algorithm? Or 
maybe this LOCAL option refers to a locally defined policy by the 
resource manager PBS/Torque?
