This might be too much DWIM, but... supposed lintian would, by default,
report the number of suppressed warnings, but only if the person running
it is not the maintainer? Lintian could use the same logic for
determining the name/address as dch does.
Additionally, there should then be options like
--never-summarize-overrides and --always-summarize-overrides.
