AFAIK --node does not have any problems, in the contest tree it is 
unified with the MPI code and fairly well tested. I could implement 
--node for post-Jumbo-6 if people wants it (this will also automatically 
split any other cracking mode for node x out of y)

The changes you propose will be a minor pain for me to merge with 
magnum-contest and/or it will likely make implementing --node harder 
(right now it would be very easy because I keep the contest tree up to 
par with bleeding).
