Well, you can very easily install signal handlers in perl and get it to do 
stuff on receipt of sigterm, if you want. Might still end up a tad flaky if 
you're not careful, but "man perlipc" anyway (read and understand it: While 
perl goes to great lengths to make signals easy, so that even very naive code 
doing crazy things in signal handlers that would make C programmers cry is 
perfectly safe in perl, there are caveats.)

At present, you basically have to use programs that use the TM api to spawn 
tasks. So, LAM compiled with TM support, openrte with TM support, pbsdsh, OSC 
mpiexec etc. 

As mentioned (um, apparently in reply to you even?) not very long ago at all:
