[Bioclusters] Is the "OR" job dependency useful??

Gridengine currently has the "AND" operator job dependency:

A,B -> C

ie. we need to wait for job A and B finish before we start job C.

There are discussions on the SGE dev mailing list about adding the OR
job dependency:

A|B -> C

So job C will start as soon as job A or job B finishes.

I am wondering if this is useful in bioinformatics job flows??
