Allow overriding of bug priority/rank

      Description

      Given the fact that the jenkins plugin bundles findbugs and uses it to determine the rank of a bug instance it is not possible to override the default values. (not that this is easy to do with findbugs to begin with).

      It would be nice to be able to change the rank of a bug pattern in the analysis of the jenkins plugin. This way you can gradually increase the software quality by making certain types of bugs more critical to the build result (without needing to fix 100s of bug instances in one go).

          I don't think that this feature would make sense in the plug-in. At least for my teams I want to ensure that a warning in Jenkins also shows up with the same priority in Eclipse and Maven (console). So the right way to do this is to configure it in the tool (i.e. in findbugs). Then all displaying backends show the same information. I haven't checked if you can change that in Findbugs, at least for PMD and Checkstyle you can configure these priorities in the tools.

          (Won't fix does not mean that I won't consider a pull request for such a feature, so feel free to provide a patch)
