I'm hoping someone who's given this some thought can help me understand. Most style-checking tools seem to distinguish between warnings and errors.
To me, the point of a lint error is that a style issue ought to be fixed.
In the cases where the tool isn't smart enough to see that an exception can be made, many tools have a syntax for ignoring/acknowledging the errors. This makes sense too.
What cases are left where a warning might be of any use?
