yes, this is very important. We do that with pragmas (see Lukas'
mail). Lint rules are part of the conventional tests and the rule is
that these must be green. There are cases where Lint complains but you
know it is ok. If we couldn't annotate these methods as ok, the whole
thing would not work.
In the long term, I think it would be really cool if we manage to get
the Pharo core Lint-clean!
