Actually no warnings should be suppressed at all IMO. They do not
fail the build after all. There is a reason to disable errors but
that can be achieved by modifying the badness score instead. That
way the package doesn't fail but one can still see the error/warning
in the log and have automated tools recognize it. A use case of that
is e.g. to be able to judge whether a transition that required
packaging changes in many packages is actually completed.
Maybe we should introduce a unsuppressable warning that warns about the
presence of a filter :-)
