[HTCondor-users] Condor executable http transfer?

So I have a submit file like:

universe = vanilla
executable = blastp
arguments  = -db yeast.aa -query query1
should_transfer_files = YES
when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT
transfer_executable = FALSE
transfer_input_files = http://<INSERT URL HERE>/blast/bin/blastp

Notice, I am transferring the executable using transfer_input_files because I want to use the curl_plugin (using web caching...).  When I submit this job, the job is held because blastp is not executable.  This isn't really surprise, as curl will download all files as non-executable.  But should Condor be smart enough to chmod the executable before attempting to start it?

Is there a better way of doing this? I can use a very simple wrapper of course, which is what I ended up doing, but do I have to?
