  Kernels and various parts of init systems print warning messages all
the time for similar reasons (some operation failed because it's not
supported in the current configuration), I don't think it's fair to
single out this one. I would prefer to do nothing.

  That said, if it's important for more users, I could probably add a
verbosity setting, where -v0 would silence warning messages.
  The problem is that it would do so for *all* warning messages, you'd
have no way to tell whether you missed a warning that was actually
relevant to you.

  And no, I'm not adding a separate switch for every warning message
in the program :P
