I do not want to completely filter them away, as they can be useful
occasionally. I do not want them to pop up a buffer, though.

Clisp, ABCL have a similiar problem as they signal redefinition warnings
when C-c C-k'ing a buffer where they used C-c C-c on some toplevel form
before. Though that's mostly because their backends do not correctly
implement C-c C-c by going through the file compiler.

Another way would be to catch redefinition warnings in the implementations
of swank-compile-*.
