No, because that means we have to maintain that. In this specific case, support for running the tests under `root` also means that we have to be careful with not messing up your system in irreversible ways in the test suite. And it would mean in theory that we need to add such a testing configuration, otherwise the tests and the annotations will get out of sync and your use case will break again.

We discussed it with other libc++ maintainers and it is our opinion that the use case of running the tests under `sudo` is not something we want to support at the moment.
