ancient-standards-version is a warning, not an error, and would be
completely ignored (not even reported) by this patch.

Actually, using s/^e/Rejected (lintian)/i instead of map..grep, (letting
warnings through but still only rejecting on lines that begin with
something like E: or error:), might be a good idea.
