[sudo-workers] Error/Warning word in visudo output

Thanks for quick reply. No, we don't have any customer complaining about this, we haven't shipped this new sudo yet. But still we think this is a regression to worse and it would be nice to have this information in the output message. For example if user ran 'visudo -s -c' (with the older sudo version) with bad cofiguration in sudoers, it gives Error in output, but running 'visudo -c' gives just Warning with the same configutation. Currently visudo gives the same output in both cases. Although 'visudo -c' gives extra message '/etc/sudoers: parsed OK', but I think it's not clear if it's considered as Error or Warning in the strict mode (when user doesn't open visudo but just checks it with 'visudo -s -c').
