Salt added before or after cooking oatmeal?

Many recipes call for adding some salt to the water before cooking your oatmeal (I use steel-cut oats). Others, however, recommend adding the salt towards the end of the cooking time, claiming that salt tends to inhibit the breakdown (softening) of the oats and therefore adding to the cooking time.
Anybody know if there is any science out there to support or reject this claim?
