bug#25418: Proposal to quiet file size modified warning

I see two different phrasings here: "warning" in the source message vs "error" 
in Paul's answer.

Quickly looking through the source:
- should it be treated like a warning? If yes, why does it not use warning() 
and/or set an exit code ("2")?
  And if it is a warning, then it should perhaps conform to the man-page which 
states that all warnings are
  suppressed with --quiet.
- should it be treated as an error? If yes, I do not see an exit code ("1") 
being set. Is that an oversight?
