[torqueusers] wait for job completion

I'm transitioning a cluster from Platform/LSF to Torque, and one of  
the ways the cluster is used is to run jobs submitted over a web cgi  
front end. In the cases that the run is short enough, the results  
would be returned on a web page.  This relied on the bsub -K option in  
LSF which doesn't return control to the shell until the job is finished.

Is there something equivalent in Torque? Or has anybody hacked another  
way to do this? I can imagine setting up a semaphore file on a shared  
directory, but I'm hoping for something simpler.
