Unfortunately the current jcheck model does not support that at all. :-( 
So that'd mean that a general "warning" functionality needs to be 
developed first. Which, as I said, I'm all in favor for, but it needs to 
be done...

If we had that, then we could have a (generous) upper bound for binary sizes where jcheck makes it an error, and a much lower bound for which jcheck warns you that you perhaps should reconsider.
