 If the system goes down or the program
falls over, the value is left and the jobs looking for it don't run --
even though the program isn't running.  For this reason, I prefer the
allocation method.

If the job 2 depends upon job 1, then an abnormal end to job 1 might be a
major disaster, especially if unnoticed.  Of course that is why we have
programmers.  Different tools for different jobs.
