Let's plan a cmdline argument then.
Should we go for -L<level> much like -W<warning>? Or -x logging for setting a default value of debug or info?
Per python specification, -x is implementation dependent.
I'll advocate for -L. I think the same concerns as -W are relevant for all python implementations, and it gives more flexibility in terms of log level.
Next question: Should -x dev include it? If it was python day-1, I would say yes. My issue is the double inclusion of stream handlers in case the logging was bootstrapped already. So -x dev probably shouldn't include it.

I think it’s a “Bad Idea” to use an environment variable — who knows what Python script may be running on a given system?
But a standard command line argument to the interpreter could be useful.

Another idea I've had that may be of use:
PYTHONLOGGING environment variable.
Setting PYTHONLOGGING to any log level or level name will initialize logging.basicConfig() with that appropriate level.
Another option would be that -x dev or a different -x logging will
As a heavy user of logging, I like this one a lot. In a new project, the lack of such a feature allows one to stick with print() perhaps longer than is prudent.
