Just think "chunks" instead of > "nodes". You could use even larger numbers like --node=n/1000000. Right, but there's not necessarily a need to consider machines' relative speeds. It may be OK for the faster machine to be completing and be assigned new tasks 20x more often. Alternatively, chunks may be assigned per CPU core or per GPU rather than per machine - then the relative performance differences are less, but the master script needs to manage more "nodes".
