Please do NOT do this by default -- it'll break a lot of stuff.

For example, we submit thousands of jobs, with a single hold_jid running as a "caboose" of the job train.  The caboose job then gathers up
the status of all of the thousands of jobs, and generates a report.  It needs to run regardless of if the previous jobs exit codes.

A typical example of this is when submitting test cases to a grid, and then generating a report of the pass/fail tests.
