procs=X works today (with Moab, I guess Maui would need to be fixed).
No changes needed for TORQUE, except that TORQUE doesn't know what
procs means, it just runs the job on the nodes Moab tells it too...

so if you don't care about it not working without Moab, we have this
solution today, and it works correctly with EXACTNODE.

In my opinion, I think nodes=X,procx=Y should generate a syntax error...
