I think we're getting confused here with the meaning of 'parallel',
as in 'mpich programs' and 'jobs which run at the same time'.
I have probably misunderstood!

I think choosing specific hosts won't scale.
If you add new hosts to the cluster, you'll have to hard-wire in to
a machines file again.
OK, that may not concern you.

Perhaps its better to extend the hosts complex with a machine type.
I'm assuming here you have different types of machine - eg. fast/slow
or big memory machines?
then specify that machine type in qsub for each type of job.
Or am I way off base here?
