Need for new compiler directives to supress warnings

I think support of some directive to supress specific warnings 
should be added to the compiler/lint in future versions.

The two most obvious things I would like to see is:
1) supression of warning definition of bif.
   this warning is, i guess, the result of the uncertainty of scope
rules in the dark ages.
   i would like to be able to:

2) supression of warning on use of obsolete functions.
   In some case use of obsolete is absolutely necessary
   like the use of hash for backward compatibility reasons.
   could be something like:

-use_obsolete(erlang, [hash/2]).

Comments ?
