From the practical POV the most welcomed first step in updating the Twisted

Everything else could wait more detailed design etc.

Is there an obstacle preventing this from being done with twisted.python.log?

A completely new system written from scratch from the ground up might be great, but it doesn't seem necessary for something as simple as log level support.


Nope.  Anyone who wants to start adding log levels to any existing messages is welcome to do so.  There's no particular conflict with the new system, either; more information in log messages will just be even easier to utilize with some of its improvements.
