[torqueusers] Allocating resources by CPUs

Dear Torque MLs,

Is this a resource management issue or a scheduling issue? eg is it part 
of what TORQUE should do , or a policy statement that MAUI should be 
doing? I have always be somewhat puzzled and wondered which system 
actually selects the specific nodes to use in a job run.

With my Torque/Maui simple setup, I seem to be able to submit
Case 1) PBS -l nodes=4 and get four separate nodes, then Case 2)  PBS -l 
nodes=2:ppn=2 and I get two nodes with two processors on each node. 

Now I havee not run these cases under a large variety of cluster 
workloads, so it might be an accident of the specific workload when I 
submit these cases.

I agree that we should add a '-l cpus=x'  option to torque
