Besides that we need a tight integration of parellel jobs using the Linda library (i.e. Gaussian), and as there is nothing like `qrsh -inherit` in Torque, so any set up in Torque would need some helping cron jobs to remove old processes which I wouldn't like. To remove old processes is one of the tasks of a queuing system IMO.

The instructions for G03-D.01 still apply: i.e. assemble a line with "%lindaworkers..." in start_proc_args and copy this line in a copy of the input file while removing any former "%nproc..." lines.
