I can't speak authoritatively like Reuti can, but here's what a hostfile
looks like on my cluster (note that all our name resolution is done via
/etc/hosts -- there's no DNS involved):

iq103 8 lab.q_at_iq103 <NULL>
iq103 1 test.q_at_iq103 <NULL>
iq104 8 lab.q_at_iq104 <NULL>
iq104 1 test.q_at_iq104 <NULL>
opt221 2 lab.q_at_opt221 <NULL>
opt221 1 test.q_at_opt221 <NULL>

If I can help (testing patches, e.g.), let me know.
