I am not swayed one way or another yet. What if a user makes a request 
like the following

-l nodes=4:ppn=2+procs=6

The user wants four nodes with two processors each and then 6 processors 
anywhere they are available.

-l nodes=4+procs=4

The user wants 4 nodes plus 4 processors anywhere. This one makes less 
sense than the first, but if we allow the first we need to allow this as 
well.

Thoughts anyone?
