We've been trying to use some variables in the inline.warning.txt/html

We'd like to be able to provide our users with a link to release 'bad
content' or even 'virus' messages that they know are legitimate, similar

I know it's a little risky, but we're a software development company and
we often get attachments that get caught, and our users tend to be

reach the end users' mailboxes...

...Which seems to imply that these variables need to be specifically
added to work in a given report.

Is there any way we can add the variables ourselves?  Or do we need to
request that they be added in a new release?
