Sometimes lintian tests have bugs / limitations - false positives which
*can* be fixed but haven't been.  In those cases, you're not supposed
to add a lintian override - instead, file a bug against lintian, and
live with the warning until the bug is fixed.

If you want to reject uploads which are not lintian-clean, you'll have
to convince the lintian maintainers to stop advocating this policy.
