Well, you have been the one proposing this change ;-)

Anyway, I think the patch does not add any complexity, and the code size
should not change... The source size is increased by 39 lines, but most
of them are useful comments that clarify when the various log levels
should be used. And I think such comments are a real improvement.
So, I'd say that it is worth applying the patch: if noone complains,
I'll apply it tomorrow afternoon.
