As you might expect (as I was the requester for this feature) I'd
*really* prefer the former option. My initial reasoning for it is that
I want to make it immediately visible to sponsors if a package has
suppressed lintian warnings. If it's not the default behaviour to list
them, then I'd be worried that some people just won't notice.
