[Mauiusers] Requesting a given number of processors

Hello,

Is there a way to tell Maui "I want 100 processors" without telling it "I 
want 25 nodes with 4 processors each"?

qsub -l nodes=100 seems to demand 100 nodes, as does qsub -l 
nodes=100:ppn=1
qsub -l nodes=25:ppn=4 can give me 100 processors, but cannot allocate 
processors from nodes that have fewer than 4 idle processors

Best regards,
Jan Ploski
