I prefer Slurm's approach, they include a patch to GNU Make which
enables it to distribute tasks across a cluster from inside a Slurm
Make is far more general purpose tool and so this is likely a more
useful way of attacking the problem.
It's also a surprisingly short and easy change and so could quite
likely be adapted to other queuing systems - say Torque with pbsdsh.
All it does is try and launch a bunch of single core tasks.
All the best,
