Apologies for the confusion.  However, that doesn't deaql with
multi-level sorting on seqno and load.  In an inhomogeneous cluster,
you typically want to sort by seqno (node type) first.  At
least in that case, the second-level packing using slots for the load
doesn't work for us in the serial case either.  There's a
one-liner fix for the parallel case in the Univa repo, but I don't know
what's the problem in the serial case.

Excuse the typping -- I have a broken wrist
