Array jobs are intended to be mutually independent, so you can't have dependency 
on sequence among them.

Why not just submit jobs one by one with -hold_jid?

If you find that submit time is long for submitting many jobs at once, have you 
tried using GE 6?  Submit times for GE 6 can be quicker than for SGE 5.3.
