Comment (by hinder):

 Re: comment:2, we would also need a mechanism to touch the checkpoint
 files, or arrange that these were also stored in a nonvolatile location.
 These might be too big for that.  Without the checkpoint files, the
 simulation can't be recovered anyway.  We should ask the admins what to do
 about checkpoint files which are sufficiently old to be purged between
 jobs.  I have heard of 2-week purge times, and it's not impossible that
 jobs could take longer than that to start.
