Not as far as I can tell... from tinkering around, it seems if you have more than 1 race at once, they still share the same supply count... as opposed to each having their own, like in SC1. So you can still only get 200 supply worth of units, even with multiple races. I haven't tried messing around with the campaign editor, maybe it's more flexible there, but in a single-player custom game, at least, turn on the invincibility cheat and neural parasite an SCV and a probe, and end up with all three tech trees... and they'll all share the same supply count.
Also, since we're sharing... I'm Phlip 494 (SEA). I don't play MP much, but that's mainly an aversion to randoms... if it's someone I know (say, someone from here) then I'm up for it. I'll probably lose, but I'll be up for it.
