Lintian now supports being given a list of tags and then only reporting
specifically those tags, ignoring anything else.  I believe the intention
for automatic rejects is to add specific tags that are both very serious
and that we're extremely confident in, rather than using the coarse
error/warning distinction.  It seems like something similar could work
