Just a general "Gah!", not necessarily directed at you :)  Anyway, it's
#254542: Change violations.d override

The majority of emails I get about logcheck are confused admins wondering why
a rulefile doesn't work, when it's just because lines are being pulled by

Eh, It definitely makes things more complicated.  The benefit would not be
great for me, but I tend to read logcheck mails  without really caring about
which level things show up under.  I may be a bad judge on this one, but I'd
like to see it changed.  Of course, I'm open to discussion about it.
