I started to add your corrections to the documentation when I realized we have
another item we need to define. That is the host. In context of nodes as a
resource a node is not the same as a host. When we are configuring the nodes
file we are actually configuring execution hosts. When we are requesting nodes
we are requesting parts of each host.

Please add any comments you think are appropriate.
