I can imagine. There was also some more discussion in my linked
javacheck patch: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/88833, which
should have been on the list.

But honestly: why do we want to have subsequentcheck at all, and not
just run all tests after the build. This would get rid of all the
use_more_fonts and whatever over hacks currently exist. The machine
should be busy enough building LO. Eventually it might even lead to more
stable test runs ;-)
