This sounds like a good idea!
I'll change lintian so that `overridden' errors/warnings are displayed
with "O:", but only if the `-v' (verbose) option is specified. In
addition, I'll change the reporting tool so that these overridden messages
are also displayed on the web page (together with a prominent note, that
these messages are not considered as warning/error for the package).
