Maybe someone with a little knowledge of C could add a -q --quiet
parameter to the debian source?
Then the default behaviour would be to honour Hans Reiser's wishes
to the full extent. People needing to have a quiet run (from scripts
or whatever could deliberately suppress the messages.
Using the -q switch implies that you know the contents of the
accreditation, but do not wish your scripts to be let in on the
secret as well.
Unfortuneately I do not program C.
