Good idea! Meshes nicely with the existing grammar!

Hm, though error communications from the checker script to the user
become a bit opaque - the only thing the periodic_hold_reason could
say would be that the checker script returned false, but not why.
But then again I suppose the checker could chirp an update
to the hold reason attribute.

This isn't already an undocumented feature of condor_submit, is it?
