[torqueusers] Host name lookups for node lists.

A question popped up on the rocks-list about node naming when you specify 
specific nodenames in the nodes=.... list.  Is it possible to get torque to 
accept any alias for a node?

In rocks we have the full local domain names in the hosts list of pbs_server, 
like compute-X-Y.local and we have aliases to the same node like, cX-Y and 
compute-X-Y.  In the current config one has to 
specify -lnodes=compute-X-Y.local for torque to accept the job, it would be 
nice to be able to do -lnodes=cX-Y or any other valid alias too. 
submit_filter would be an option, but that is overly messy.
