Thanks for the heads up Chris. I was thinking that since most scripts/programs
process $PBS_NODEFILE to decide where to run, that this was the logical place
to put information about which GPUs to run on. It seems to me that any program
that parses $PBS_NODEFILE would need to be updated in order to place itself on
a GPU. Please also note that if GPUs are not requested, no change would be made
to $PBS_NODEFILE. 

That being said, if desired, we could create something else to store the GPUs
in - perhaps the $PBS_GPUFILE or something. Would that be better?

David
