Yes. The next release of Vera++ will be able to include the rule number
in the report line if some command-line option is given. This will be
very easy to parse/extract and then linked with any behaviour needed.

Note also that it is typical for a single rule to trigger *many* times
on a larger body of code. It would not be very comfortable to get these
hints repeated thousand times.

Similarly, Vera++ will support lists of exclusions, which will be
provided *externally*. There is no need to be intrusive in the code
itself to achieve this.
Note also that proper implementation of exclusion lists will allow to
handle whole groups of files - for example all files from specific
directory (this actually makes sense in Boost, especially for files that
are test cases for wave - they intentionally break all possible rules).
It would be inefficient to impose comments like above into such files,
especially if it could interfere with the parser test case that a given
file is supposed to implement.
