Not directly. You could use a queue prolog to remove the actual starting job from all jobs which depend on this one. This makes it necessary, that all exechosts are also submission hosts.

To remove a complete -hold_jid list, you can give the job id 0 there to `qalter`. As this job id will never be a real job, it always satisfies the condition as being completed already.
