Re: Opinions needed: reporting lintian overrides

> * Show the N: line with a count of overrides per package by default and
>   provide an option to suppress this output if someone wants.
> * Don't show the N: line by default and provide an option to turn it on.

Others contributors in this thread seem to think differently and I

easily summarized as "do we trust our fellow DD to do The Right Thing"
and not abuse overrides......

So, well, I wouldn't cry too hard if the second option is finally
