Separate "informational messages" from warning/error count summary #6

I was just looking for a way to switch off the rather long "informational messages" that get sent to stderr and found this:


Type:    Boolean
Default: no
Example: y/n, yes/no, t/f, true/false, 1/0

This  option  specifies if Tidy should output the summary of the
numbers of errors and warnings, or the welcome or  informational

Using quiet: yes in a config file works as expected. The only problem being that it also disables the summary of the number of warnings/errors along with it, which doesn't really seem to be related at all, and is actually quite useful.

Would it be possible to make these options separate to allow enabling the summary but disabling the messages? Perhaps quiet: yes/no could be kept for the messages and something like summary: yes/no could be used for the warning/error counts?


I'm sure it would be possible, and I will check into it when I can. In the mean time, a patch would of course be welcome.
