Different performance from what? In the other thread we established that
these target_nodelists are kind of a backwards reference, they all have
their characteristics anyway. Perhaps this just needs to say:
"Memory access from this node to these targets may have different performance"?

i.e. Don't make the assumption I did that they should all be the same!
