Not yet, but it would not be hard to implement. Although the subsequent
c++ tests are currently only in sal (which has no Java tests). So you
can pragmatically already run those with:

 make -sr subsequentcheck

That is not at all different from my position on unit tests at all
really. I just think we should not dogmatically refuse to use subsequent
tests where they are the pragmatic solution (because a real unit test
is hard or fragile). And the five minutes to run all subsequent tests
in headless mode now are not really any barrier at all.

Best Regards,
