pylint #22962 possibility to disable message categories with full name [resolved]

As reported by Red Hat bug , some people type full name of message categories like:

pylint --disable-msg-cat=warning,refactor,convention

However, doing this yields

raise Exception('Unknown category identifier %s' % catid)
Exception: Unknown category identifier A

It would be nice to make it possible to type the full message category name.
