And having a logging system which doesn't even support a basic
log level is just silly. Hopefully the new system can at least
have that.

The new system being proposed does have log levels.  (And, for that
matter, so does Twisted currently; we've had log levels for
compatibility with stlib Python logging forever.)

It's quite well hidden, though. Looking at
http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/current/api/twisted.python.log.html,
there is no mention of logging levels. For that matter it doesn't
mention twisted.python.log.msg() either!

Yes; in general, the current logging system's documentation is atrocious.  Part of this new effort should be to completely re-vamp how we explain things.
