I'm trying to integrate namcap in an automated workflow and it currently only prints errors to stdout and doesn't return a non-0 status code. It would be nice if it would do that so I don't need to grep for "E:".

> namcap PKGBUILD
PKGBUILD (namcap) E: Missing license
> echo $?

I'd be happy to provide a patch if wanted.

Open questions:

* Should this be configurable so the strictness can be extended to "W" and "I" as well?
* Should the return status represent the amount of found problems or just 1?
This task depends upon
