I am using logger.warn() not logging.warn().

The question is: How to know which kind of duck "logger" is?

"logger" was created by "logging.getLogger(__name__)"

It is not the question how to implement better guessing in the IDE.

The basics needs to be solved. Everything else is "toilet paper programming"
(Ah, smell inside, ... let's write an wrapper ...)
