I used to use the post job hook but I think it's a lot cleaner to use
the label option - eg where I want the output name based on a user
supplied text string "out_prefix", something like:

    <data format="html" name="html_file"  label="${out_prefix}.html"/>

works for me and avoids the need to have a post execution hook code file.
