OK, that's a reasonable discussion, let's not do this. Also I note that in
my own usage, "note" comes below "warning", not above it. E.g. mypy has
three levels for its end-user facing messages: error, warning, and note.
(Note that mypy does not use the logging module -- but it would still feel
odd to me to see "note" between warning and error rather than below
