In so far as I know, you're the first person to ever ask for that, so
we haven't really thought about when or if we'd add that feature. 

One thing that is coming is a new way to get the job classad at the
end of the job - you'll be able to dump it right into a file, without
having to ask condor_history or look in the quill database

it'll be something like

universe =vanilla
executlabe = simulation.exe
output = sim.out
job_history_file = history.txt

then, at the end of the job, history.txt will have the exact same data that
a 'condor_history -l' would have, including any custom attributes that you
inserted into the job ad with CHIRP.

(I don't know when this will get into condor or what the option will be 
called, but I think it will be there early in 6.9)
