No.  Basically your script has to query the jobqueue table in the
database every so often and check the cmds column to see if the
value in that column is non-zero.  These values are defined in jobqueue.h:

enum JobCmds {
    JOB_RUN          = 0x0000,
    JOB_PAUSE        = 0x0001,
    JOB_RESUME       = 0x0002,
    JOB_STOP         = 0x0004

So if the cmds value is 4 then your script should stop itself.  If it
is 1 then it should pause and then check again every so often until it
gets a 2 telling it to resume.
