[torqueusers] Dependencies

There is some way to submit forward dependencies, too.  It's more or less
the same thing.

It would be quite nice if the system dealt with jobs completing and
submitting dependencies on them.  Sure it's not too hard to wrap the proper
submission functionality, but if it's such a common problem, why not make
torque's dependencies robust enough to do it?

I thought in that case, step2 will be killed because the dependency cannot 
be satisfied?
Out of the box afaik this can't be done. You would end up with hacking the 
source. BUT!

What we do is: submit the first job in the dependency chain "on hold", then 
submit all following, then un-hold the jobs, and then be happy :)
