I don't recall ever having an ET call where this was discussed. Should 
it be scheduled?

There is a low-level interface to the scripts where you (unfortunately) need to set many parameters (nodes, cores, processes, threads, SMT threads, memory to be used, CPU time to be used, etc.), and a high-level interface where you (unfortunately) basically cannot set anything since these are all chosen automatically... I should give an overview in person; would next Monday during the ET call make sense?
