Horvath, are you coming to Condor Week?  Himani Apte is going to talk
about her research in incorporating ClassAds into DAGMan.

What she has done so far doesn't exactly address what you're interested
in, but it would certainly make it easier to do what you want.  Himani is
interested in hearing what people want to do with DAGMan to take advantage
of the capabilities of ClassAds.
