Is there overlap on these tests, or are they each testing different  
things? If it's the latter, you could run the junit tests using testng  
and have it all in one call.

 From what I've seen, doing this is likely to get you one big pass/ 
fail of whether the suite can run in the given order from scratch (ie  
you'd need to set it up in a clean env.) and makes it harder to fix  
one test that might start failing at some point. Also, the default  
Java from Selenium IDE tends to need a little tweaking.
