Thanks for the info, since you're relying on this at UWisc can I
assume it's likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future?

Let me see if I understand (since I'm about to actually try and put
this all together).

I have a collection of machines called borg<nn>.  They have AFS a
standard NFS automounting and a shared GFS storage system.

I define these as FS_DOMAIN=borg.nfs.csail.mit.edu.  I expect jobs
started here will stay on "borg" systems unless the FS_DOMAIN is
specified mor egenericly for the job.  I also expects jobs for the
FS_DOMAINs "csail.mit.edu" and "nfs.csail.mit.edu" will be matched to
these resources and that "borg.csail.mit.edu" would not match.
