I like the idea but I have the same feelings as Francesco. I think that we need to make sure that functional tests for each vertical are stable before enabling this process.

This flag will be called 'Workflow' or we can name it otherwise, we just need to choose what makes sense. 
David/Yaniv - Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Sounds good, even though I'm a little scared (just gut feeling, no evidence
whatsoever) that this could add even more complexity and fragility to the jenkins

In the long run, when this is reliable, it will help greatly.
In the short term, I'm scared because this can lead to false positives and bogus

Let me stress I don't have concrete item to share or specific flaws.

As action item on me, I will find some time next week to check virt functional tests,
to see if they need some fixes, work reliably and so forth
