A more flexible range specification would be also really useful for parallel
environments. For some calculations we need specialized domain
decomposition. We might, for example, decompose the domain into 12, 8, 6, 4
subdomains.  In which case one can't simply specify "-pe foo 4-12" and hope
for the best, but a finer grained control is needed:
  Eg, "-pe foo 4,6,8,12".

Of course, this only makes sense when we can simultaneously specify masterq
resources too.
