How are people dealing with jobs the run longer than expected due to post-processing logic?

We have jobs that we would like to make sure don't have a total runtime longer than a specific value. However, these jobs perform much of their processing in post-processing. We have recently found out the MRT does not include post-processing time in its evaluation. We are told by Automic that this is by design. So, runtime, for the purposes of MRT, does not actually include all time from start to end of a task.

How do other people deal with the fact that MRT does not include post-processing? Have you written a custom process?
