    I actively want to avoid giving message numbers. My interest is in
    selectively removing messages from the kernel to shrink the binary size (and
    NOT make it up in either a larger userspace utility to translate them, or
    else magic proprietary numbers you can only diagnose if you pay my support
    staff).

    This does not address my problem. Spitting out a proprietary hash code
    instead of a human readable message is not a solution for my use case.
