Seconded as a much requested piece of functionality on SMP heavy farms.

IIRC XXXX this is the pid so just exposing that would be sufficient
for me to make it *really* easy for the users to get to their data if
they wanted too.

To be honest a more useful to end users feature would be
condor_transfer_files --so-far or such like which just pulled back all
the data as the job was running even if this had to kill the job to do
it since that is the normal request. Of course if it did have to kill
the job then a name like condor_force_terminate would be more
