you mean like passing nested <sysproperty> and
<syspropertyset> to <junit>?  These are available.

So just use a junit.forkmode property defaulted to
"once" and overridable with -D from the command line.

Another popular strategy for using user-specific setup
is to have your buildfiles attempt to load a
properties file by a well-known name early on (first

<property file="build.properties" />

If the file does not exist, no harm, no foul.  If it
does exist it is a convenient place to override
default property settings.
