Having only a warning is not sufficient for the use of lilo in new 
installations! We really need lilo to fail there, which means a non-zero  
exit code.

I guess that will also affect package upgrades, but IMO that's a good 
thing as otherwise the warning may just be lost in the general package 
installation noise.

If you wish to discuss this further, feel free to contact the D-I team on 
the debian-boot list.
