faq says:

"""The feature is supported in normal Java tests, in shell tests, and in
legacy applet tests. (It is not supported in JUnit or TestNG tests, which
do not use explicit test descriptions.)"""

But ... Both JUnit and TestNG tests can use """explicit test
descriptions""".  Unless they are Type 2 tests as described in 6.2

Further confusion - there's documented support for running "implicit"
testng tests but I don't see any such support for junit.  E.g. there's no
documented junit.dirs I can put into TEST.ROOT.
