    Want + subjunctive

    Dear colleagues, as far as Conditional sentences are closely related to the use of Subjunctive mood, I wonder whether anybody has ever met the verb "want" in the list of verbs followed by subjunctive (along with advise, ask, beg, command, decree, demand, direct, insist, instruct, intend, order, prefer, propose, recommend, request, require, stipulate, suggest, urge, warn)?
