I have been thinking about the same problem, AFAIK at present this is
not covered by the standard, SGE_TASK_ID is another such example.
However, I think this can easily be implemented by the various DRM
vendors through a small utility/script, e.g.
drmaa -t # return task id
drmaa -n # return number of procs/slots
then, in your script you would have
mpirun -np $NP ...
