--- Comment #1 from dodji at redhat dot com ---
The code that evaluates a suppression specification and determines that it
matches an ABI artifact is in abg-comparison.cc.  It's called "suppression
engine" and it's part of the comparison engine.

We need to separate that suppression engine from the comparison engine and make
it have a well defined API.  We'll then adjust the comparison engine to make it
use the API of that new suppression engine logical component.

Then we'll change the xml format writer to make it use the suppression engine
to know if it should emit a decl or not, depending on if the decl (or its type)
has been suppressed.
