This seems to fall within the recent discussion of map/reduce operators for workflows, e.g. breaking large jobs up for embarrassingly parallel tasks, then merging them back at some later point. Dannon mentioned some basic functionality does exist within Galaxy to do this, but it's at an early stage of development. Peter Cock did get some things to work with it.
