Thinking further what we could really do with is a way to tell Maui & Moab to 
do the right thing, rather than extending the RM (and then extending the 
scheduler to cope).

Perhaps add another JOBNODEMATCHPOLICY option, perhaps ALMOSTEXACTNODE ?

Then a job that asks for nodes=N get N cpus and a job that asks nodes=N:ppn=x 
gets what it asked for.
