Prog return levels

Is there a way for argus to be configured to automatically override
something, if for instance, a Prog service returns a status of 2.

Return		Action
0		OK
1		Page problem
2		Automatically override

Reason, we are doing a number of tests on databases, and we'd love to
automatically override paging, if for example the database was down.  That
way we get paged for the database being down, but don't get multiple extra
pages as to other db check failures.

I'd be nice to be able to do the something the same for the built-in tests.
Yep nice to know the box is down, but don't really need to be told that
every service tested is also down.

Cheers Joe.
