[GE users] Serial, then parallel, then serial - jobs

Hi all,

I have a situation where it would be preferable to be able to run a job
that allows me to do a single task first, then a set of array job tasks,
then a final single task to finish up. The onus being that the array
jobs shouldn't start until the first task has finished, and similarly,
then final task shouldn't start until the array jobs are done. The
reason being that the array jobs require data that is only created by
the first job, and the final job has to collate the results from the
array jobs back together.

Is this possible within a single script (to qsub) or can it only be
handled manually with three separate scripts and not submitting the 2nd
until the 1st is done, or the 3rd until the 2nd is complete?
