That sucks.

Well, actually, I like this, but since we now have an opportunity to
make it "just right", wouldn't it be better to say [ NOTICE ] instead
of [ WARN ]?

If this is something more than tweaking a string in the functions,
then by all means, simply convert my answer to a resounding YES to
put it back the way it used to be. However, it seems that making
the string change would be easy, and [ NOTICE ] seems better than
[ WARN ].
