This is the way I use it too. But for new users it looks like it would be necessary to "install" something on the new exechosts.

I suggested once to leave the local configuration out at all, as the clusters I have access to have the same OS anyway and you need it only fox mixed OSes in the cluster, but Andy favored to leave it the way it is at that time.

Maybe it could be an option in the template in some way. It led to many confusions in the past, also when there are some entries for qrsh_client and alike in the local configuration and parallel jobs weren't working for them as they changed only the global setting all the time.
