[antlr-interest] lexical nondeterminism warning

I have a grammar, and when run Antlr on it, I get several warnings of
the form:
"warning: lexical nondeterminism between rules XXX and YYY on ..."

I know what is causing these warnings (I am using '-' to mean lots of
things) and i am OK with them. Is there any way I can switch the warnings
so that I only get the warnings that might indicate something is wrong?

I have tried:

   option { generateAmbigWarnings = true; }

but this doesn't work because this option is only allowed in parser rules, 
and I am using it in lexer rules.
