Actually, probably  both. Keep the global setting and allow the project 
to override it. same for the list of ignored exceptions...

It's just a question of finding the time to implement it.

IMHO just creating a duplicate of the setting, will do the trick BUT 
might easily lead to mis-configuration.  Config must be very easy to 
check, so if people run into trouble (and enough people do) then a few 
questions by mail should be enough to check it.

So  maybe best would be (open for other ideas), if both global option 
dialog  and project option dialog  would allow to see both settingsi 
(similar to the editor color options, where you have toolbuttons to 
toggle global-scheme and language setting)
