Actually, it would be interesting to have a discussion about how one
would port OpenPBS or SGE to Scyld.

I think it should look like the SGI O2k version, with 1 mom on the
master. This mom would query Scyld to find out the resources
available, and report that as its # of cpus. When a job starts, it's
mom who picks which cpus it uses, perhaps using the Scyld resource
allocation layer. And then that information needs to get communicated
to beompi.
