More than just jobs success/failure certainly can't be returned for
array jobs. Possibly jobs exit status should be returned for sequential
jobs only.

Deliberating more about qsub '-sync y' exit status behaviour I tend to
doubt jobs' exit status can be used at all. In case qsub returns '1' it
might indicate job execution has failed or the job ran successfully and
finished with exit status '1'. Though an error message is returned in
case of jobs failure but this isn't the interface I'd dream of.

What are users thinking about such an interface?
