Since condor_hold behaves like condor_vacate -fast a -graceful option
on it would be nice and achieve what you want.

for now the following might work (depending on your universe)

in submit file
on_exit_hold = ForcedVacateAndHold

to get them off the machines
%MY_JOBS% => (some constraint identifying your jobs)
condor_qedit  %MY_JOBS% ForcedVacateAndHold True
condor_vacate %MY_JOBS%

to rerelease

condor_qedit  %MY_JOBS% ForcedVacateAndHold False
condor_release %MY_JOBS%

This is infered from reading the docs - YMMV :¬)

not sure if the vacation counts as an exit for the purposes of
evaluating the on_exit_hold expressions...if not then provision of an
on_vacate_hold would be good :¬)
