I believe this is in 6.7.2 in the form of the condor_vacate_job command.  So, I imagine it'll be part of the 6.8 series.

It would also be nice to have the ability to vacate all jobs, and have them transition to the "held" state once the files were back.  I don't think that can be done currently, but would be a great option for condor_vacate and condor_vacate_job.
