Description

Allow a datatype's merge method (used for parallelism) to take in an additional argument - the output_dataset object - if needed. No existing merge methods should need to be modified, the only modification to Galaxy's effective runtime behavior will occur if a datatype is defined which takes in a third keyword keyword argument called output_dataset. This change can enable the composite dataset parallelism pioneered by Jorrit Boekel, but one can imagine other potential uses (setting metadata derived from multiple files for instance).
