Right, what he said. In general you have to use a BuildStep that already has
some concept of "warnings", or write your own. Some pre-existing BuildSteps
implement a special evaluateCommand() method to grep for certain patterns in
the output and use this to decide to declare the step as finishing with
results==WARNINGS instead of SUCCESS. But the basic ShellCommand only knows
of two results: SUCCESS if rc==0 and FAILURE otherwise.

Once your BuildStep can finish with one of (SUCCESS, WARNINGS, FAILURE)
rather than merely SUCCESS or FAILURE, you can use those warnOnWarnings /
flunkOnWarnings parameters to define what should happen to the overall build
if the individual step finishes with WARNINGS.
