I'd say they do *not* act as a single partition... Unless I missed some
key detail, once a node is assigned a job in a partition, it's
unavailable *as a whole* to other partitions.
So if you start a job that only requires one core on a 32-core node, the
remaining cores can only be used by other jobs in the same partition.
Obv, if you only consider whole node allocations there's no difference.
