the slot allocation would not extend beyond a given node.

Here is what John last wrote following a long exchange:

However, I don't see any trace of these modifications in the repos? Was
this abandoned?

Could you suggest a strategy to enable the by_node parallel environment
and have it added to the all.q queue at init time? (I see that I can
initialize it with qconf ­ap by_node then add it manually with qconf -mq
