NCPU option only on grid command, not in optimizer

Description

The grid command accepts an NCPU option to limit the number of CPUs employed in a run. This option is needed to prevent using more than the physical memory in a machine, which causes thrashing and VERY long exec times.

This option is not present on the optimizer commands. An IUCAA group was not able to do optimized calculations with their laptops due to memory limitations.
