Should there be another issue opened to do something about the extra logging
IMO they shouldn't have been added in the first place, but I'm not sure if they're part of the public API and hence subject to backward-compatibility constraints. It would be nice to hear a justification for them from Jesse (or someone else). Of course levels are a bit subjective and logging supports user-defined levels for special cases, but using multiple libs with different added levels would be a headache. I think at least the stdlib should stick to the standard levels.
