That was not what I wanted. Yes, an experienced user can easily create
a script that does this, but my intension is something quite different:

GNU parallel does a great job in putting high load on a system. And
my question was: Shouldn't we take more care that not-so-experienced
users do not overload their machines by accident.

(Also see my to-be-written mail about "transfer" and NFS, and how
I hit my cluster in a way that I needed to hard-reset the compute
nodes to bring the head node back to life. :-))
