This patch add a warning to lint for 'revision: 0'

This received some negative feedback in IRC. I'm putting this here to get more feedback and if it should be trashed.

It was mentioned that there's no real harm in having it and sub-ports might have a legit reason for 'revision: 0'

-1. I strive to deliberately put a revision line in every subport of every port that uses subports, even if it is "revision 0". This often successfully prevents inattentive committers from incorrectly increasing the revision of all of a port's subports when they should only be increasing the revision of one of the subports.

Some other maintainers like to keep "revision 0" in their ports as a reminder to themselves of the syntax to use.
