A DAG did occur to me, but I figure if I'm going to write a script to do the submission anyway, I was thinking I may as well just write a single submit description with multiple queue statements with seed updates between each one.

However, it looks like that wouldn't work either, because $RANDOM_INTEGER is evaluated for each queue instance, even if you assign it to another variable.

So looks like maybe DAG is the way to go.
